Approximately 42 million people—one in eight individuals in America—could experience food insecurity in 2021 due to the ongoing economic fallout from COVID-19. Across the country, people have to choose between paying for groceries or bills. Many facing hunger are experiencing these tough choices for the very first time in their lives.
Which is why Walmart and Sam’s Club are coming together with their supplier partners, customers, members and Feeding America® member food banks for the 8th annual Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign to help fight hunger in communities nationwide.
The Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign will run in stores/clubs and online from April 5 – May 3, 2021. There are three easy ways for customers and members to participate to support their local food bank:
- Donate at check-out in stores and clubs, or at either FeedingAmerica.org/Walmart or 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.
To date, the campaign has helped to secure more than 1 billion meals* for local food banks across the country. Fighting hunger means more than providing food to our neighbors in need. It means feeding someone’s dreams, ambitions, and opportunity to be the best version of themselves.
*Currently, $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of local member food banks.
