Have you visited your local Wal-Mart store? There is some amazing efforts being done nationwide in Wal-Mart stores to help Fight Hunger in America!
As a Mom I know first hand the work that goes into preparing a meal for my family. I know too well about poverty among my people as well as the cost, accessibility and love that goes into putting a meal together for my kids.
But as a Wal-Mart Mom, I get to see, learn and share about the efforts Wal-Mart makes to making a difference when it comes to Feeding America®!
Wal-Mart believes families should have access to affordable, nutritious and sustainably grown food.
I shared with the kids last year about fight hunger and how not every family gets to buy treats and even eat 3+ times a day like we do. You too can share and make this a learning experience with your family!
This spring you can be a part of the change!
Wal-Mart is teaming up with Campbell’s, ConAgra Foods, General Mills, Kellogg Company, Kraft, and Unilever so that we can have the opportunity to help fight hunger in our local communities through the Fight Hunger Spark Change campaign! By working with these suppliers, Wal-Mart will work towards donating enough to help Feed America. They hope to secure 75 million meals for affiliate food banks across the country. This will allow food banks to provide hunger relief to the millions of people who don’t know where their next meal will come from!
Visit your local Wal-Mart and purchase one (or more) of the 239 participating products. The supplier will then make a donation. For every item purchase, a meal will be secured for a local Feeding America® Food Bank!*
Donate: At a cash register during check out you can make a donation on behalf of a local Feeding America® Food Bank. ( $1, $2 and $5 donations available)
