Visionary Partner

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation are working to support a sustainable food system that is affordable, healthier, safe and accessible to everyone.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have invested over $100 million in Feeding America since 2005 to provide charitable meals, develop infrastructure and build out essential programs. These investments have provided funding for equipment, trucks and logistical expertise to help food banks on the front lines of charitable food provision extend their reach and impact.

In FY2019, Walmart donated more than 640 million pounds of food in the U.S. alone. The retailer has also worked since 2014 to raise awareness of the issue of hunger by engaging Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, suppliers and customers in Fight Hunger. Spark Change., a cause marketing program that has helped secure over 1 billion million meals for Feeding America Food Banks in the U.S.
