We are in the home stretch of Walmart's sixth annual nationwide "Fight Hunger. Spark Change." where you can join forces with Walmart, Sam's Clubs, and many participating food companies to help our food banks fight hunger locally.
For the next week, make sure you stock up on the nearly 270 participating products from 18 great brands that you buy every day, including Bush Brothers, Campbell’s, Con-Agra Brands, Cliff Bar, General Mills, Gold Peak Tea, Great Value, Hidden Valley, JM Smucker, Kellogg, Kraft Heinz, McCormick, Motts, PepsiCo, Post, Uncle Ben’s, Nature Nate’s Honey and Unilever, as each purchase at a Walmart or Sam's Club will unlock a donation to your local food bank.
You can donate to your local Feeding America member food bank at the registers of Walmart and Sam's Club stores. Donations of $1, $2, $5 or another amount will be accepted. There is no limit to what can be raised at the register! 100% of funds will be directed to local member food banks.
100% of funds raised through in-store purchases will benefit local member food banks. Donations will be localized based on where each item is sold, so you can be sure that hunger fighting resources unlocked by your purchases stay in your community.
To support the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign and to raise awareness about the issue and the different facets of how we fight hunger and spark change, Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, our food bank in Madison, has produced a limited series podcast fittingly called, "The Fight Hunger Spark Change Podcast."
The first episode features a coordinator from a school pantry in the Wisconsin Dells, the second episode is with our Executive Director, and the third episode highlights a senior who visits the mobile pantry in Portage, Wisconsin. While all episodes are worth listening to, the third episode is a must-listen.
The podcast features just a small sliver of all of the people that the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign helps and supports locally and nationwide. In fact, since its inception, Fight Hunger. Spark Change. has helped secure the equivalent of 749 million meals and we hope that with your help in this last week, we can reach a cumulative national goal of one billion meals by the time this year's campaign ends on May 20, 2019.
