As a participant in this campaign with Walmart, I have received compensation for my time and efforts in creating this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

1 in 6 people in America struggle with hunger at some point during the year.  Those numbers absolutely break my heart especially when I think about children not having meals.

Unfortunately, many food banks are facing the time of year where food supply is often at its lowest level, it’s commonly referred to as the “spring hunger gap” because they experience a decline in food donations during the first quarter of the year.  That decline leaves food inventory at a low point at the start of each spring.  Thankfully, there’s hope!

Walmart aims to donate up to $3 million to Feeding America and its local member food banks based on public participation in the #WeSparkChange social media challenge.  That’s where we come in.  You (and I) can join forces with Walmart and Fight Hunger and Spark Change now through May 3rd.

How can I help you ask? There are 3 different ways to go about doing it and they’re easy!

3 ways to fight hunger with Walmart

#1. Products

When Walmart customers purchase one of 240 participating products in Walmart stores nationwide, a donation will be generated by the product supplier. For every participating item purchased, a meal will be secured for the local Feeding America food bank.  So be on the lookout for those items (they should have a sign near them indicating it).

#2. Donations

Walmart customers can also make a donation for the local Feeding America food bank at the cash register during checkout.

#3. Photo Sharing


Simply take a picture of 6 friends who share in your commitment to fight hunger and post the picture on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter as a public post with the hashtag #WeSparkChange

* The six people in the photo represent the one in six people who face food insecurity in the U.S.

For every public post connected to the hashtag #WeSparkChange, Walmart will donate $10, up to a maximum donation of $1.5 million, to Feeding America and and its 200 local member food banks.  That amount doesn’t include Walmart’s initial $1.5 million donation, resulting in a potential total donation of $3 million Dollars!

Help them reach their goal by posting multiple pictures, tagging friends and giving friends a 48-hour challenge to do the same.

So let’s do this!  Let’s Fight Hunger and Spark a Change!!!!
