1 in 13 Americans in communities across the U.S. Struggle with hunger, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, including 1 in 9 people in our community. To raise awareness and combat the issue, Walmart, Sam's Club, Feeding America and the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank are kicking off it's sixth annual nationwide "Fight Hunger. Spark Change." (FHSC) campaign, which will run from April 22 to May 20.
In partnership with the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank, Walmart and Sam's Club now invite shoppers in the Fredericksburg region to help fight hunger in their local community. There are three ways to participate - purchasing a participating item in-store or online, donating in-store or donating online.
With 749 million meals achieved over the last five years, Walmart and Sam's Club customers and members can help the Feeding America network secure its 1 billion cumulative meals goal in three ways. They can track the number of meals by visiting www.walmart.com/fighthunger
For every participating product purchased at U.S. Walmart stores, Sam's Clubs or on Walmart.com during the campaign, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of at least one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank, up to applicable limits.
