Walmart’s 2018 “Fight Hunger. Spark Change” national campaign continues through April 30 to help Feeding America and its network of 200 food banks, including the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.
The goal of this fifth annual campaign is to secure at least 200 million meals on behalf of Feeding America’s local member food banks. Walmart kicked off the campaign with a donation of $1.5 million.
Here’s a few ways to participate:
- Purchase participating products: Walmart is partnering with 14 of its suppliers, which will donate the equivalent of one meal for each of their participating products sold. The suppliers are General Mills, The Coca-Cola Company, Kellogg, Kraft Heinz, PepsiCo/Frito-Lay/Quaker, Bush Brothers, Clorox Sales Company, Conagra, Motts, Unilever, Maruchan, Pinnacle Foods, Post, and JM Smucker. The funds raised locally will benefit Harry Chapin Food Bank.
- Donate at the register: In addition, consumers may donate to the campaign when checking out at their local Walmart, with the funds benefiting Harry Chapin Food Bank.
- Use the Walmart Credit Card: Synchrony Bank will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal for each Walmart Credit Card transaction made at Walmart stores and on Walmart.com during the campaign
- Walmart will also make a donation for each online “action,” which will go to the Feeding America network and be distributed equally among its food banks. Actions include sharing or retweeting a post from Walmart on Facebook or Twitter, using #FightHunger on Instagram with “Fight hunger. Spark Change” campaign content, or clicking the support button on Walmart.com/FightHunger.
