FIGHT HUNGER. SPARK CHANGE. AND VOICES OF HOPE – APRIL 30
FIGHT HUNGER. SPARK CHANGE.
There’s still time to help your neighbors in need during your next trip to Walmart! Walmart and Sam’s Club are supporting the Feeding America® nationwide network of food banks, including Second Harvest, through the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign. Now in its eighth year, the campaign has been a way for Walmart and Sam’s Club to partner with suppliers, customers and members to help provide food to people in need.
The Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign will run in store and online from April 5 to May 3, 2021. There are three easy ways for customers and members to participate:
- Donate at check-out in stores and clubs, or at either www.FeedingAmerica.org/Walmart or www.FeedingAmerica.org/SamsClub.
- Round-up at check-out on Walmart.com and the Walmart app.
- For every participating product purchased in store or online at Walmart.com or SamsClub.com, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of at least one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank at Walmart and five meals ($0.50) at Sam’s Club, up to applicable limits. See specially marked packages for full details.
VOICES OF HOPE
In addition to working with our 250 partner food pantries and meal sites throughout the region, the Mobile Market is a key way Second Harvest reaches people in need with food assistance. In this video, you’ll hear directly from Reagran, our Mobile Market program manager, about why serving the community in this way is so important to her.
