The 2019 Fight Hunger, Spark Change campaign is live from April 22 – May 20. Walmart and Sam’s Club invite Northeast Arkansas shoppers 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 on Feeding America’s website.

 

With 749 million meals achieved over the last five years, Northeast Arkansas 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 produce 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.
• Donate money to your Feeding America food bank at participating Sam’s Club and Walmart stores in the U.S.
• Donate at feedingamerica.org/Walmart
