Dear Jason,
2015-04-06-wm-hunger-275x368
Here's a fact that may surprise you:

The USDA estimates one in six Americans may struggle with hunger throughout the year. Food banks are facing the time of the year known as the “spring hunger gap” when food supply is often at its lowest level.

So this spring, Walmart and our suppliers are calling on customers to join the fight against hunger and help Feeding America secure 75 million meals for affiliate food banks.

Learn more about Walmart's Fight Hunger. Spark Change campaign.

From April 6 to May 3, customers have three easy ways to get involved and help fight hunger in their local communities:
  1. Purchase:Purchase any of the 240 participating products in Walmart stores nationwide. For every item purchased, a meal will be secured for the local Feeding America food bank.
  2. Donate:Donate on behalf of a local Feeding America food bank at the cash register during checkout.
  3. Share:Share a picture on social media of six people who share our commitment to fighting hunger with the hashtag #WeSparkChange. 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 their member food banks.
At Walmart, we believe that every family should have access to affordable, nutritious and sustainably grown food, but for many families, this is not a reality. As the nation’s largest grocer, Walmart is uniquely positioned to lead on the issue of fighting hunger in the U.S.

Fight Hunger. Spark Change. is one step toward our ongoing commitment to provide food to those in need.

Sincerely,
