I grew up in an area that wasn’t a stranger to poverty. There are people living in the Appalachian Mountains that the struggle to feed themselves and their families is very real – like daily. They’re hard working, precious people that have to worry where and when the next time they will be able to eat and feed their children. They are our neighbors, not in some far away, third world country – but right here at home. Hunger is a close topic to my heart and one that I hope you’ll think about and JOIN ME IN DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

- DONATING: Donate to a local Feeding America food bank at the register.
- ONLINE: Generate donations for Feeding America food banks through online acts of support!
For each online act of support, Walmart will donate enough to help Feeding America secure 10 meals (an equivalent of $0.90) on behalf of its member food banks, up to $1.5 million. To kick off the campaign, Walmart will make an initial donation of $1.5 million to Feeding America. Based on the public’s social engagement, they aim to reach a total donation of $3 million. So you have to get involved, NOW!
My store had a dedicated aisle for some of the products so I naturally loaded up on products that I would normally buy anyway. That’s the greatest thing about this campaign, buy products that you would use and either use them yourself or donate them. Either way, Walmart is still making a donation based on your product purchase so you have everything to gain by joining in!
The store even had special TV screens set up to inform customers about what and how to help out.
So to recap, there are 3 ways to fight against hunger and be part of the campaign. Buy participating products, donate at any Walmart register, and share and share again on social media. A big kudos to Walmart for being so committed to fighting hunger – now it’s up to us to spark the change. Let’s get started!
