Walmart’s “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign is back and YOU can take action to fight hunger in Southwest Virginia today.
Now through April 30, Walmart is working with 14 food suppliers, Synchrony Bank, and Walmart customers to donate enough to help Feeding America secure at least 200 million meals on behalf of the nationwide network of 200 member food banks across the country – including Feeding America Southwest Virginia.
There are four easy ways to get involved:
- Purchase Product: For every participating product purchased at a Southwest Virginia Walmart store, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal. Participating suppliers include General Mills, The Coca-Cola Company, Kellogg, Kraft Heinz, PepsiCo/Frito-Lay/Quaker, Bush Brothers, Clorox Sales Company, Conagra, Motts, Unilever, Maruchan, Pinnacle Foods, Post, and JM Smucker.
- Donate directly to FASWVA at the register in increments of $1, $2, $5 or an any amount you choose. Donating is also an option at the self-checkout (Scan
and Go) register. When you click “Finish & Pay” on totals over $10, it will
trigger the prompt with details on donating.
- Make an online act of support: For every traceable post of campaign content with #FightHunger on Instagram and for every traceable share or retweet on Facebook and Twitter of campaign content, Walmart will donate $10.00 to Feeding America and for every click on the support button on the program website, Walmart will donate $1.00 to Feeding America, up to $1.5 million.
- Use your Walmart Credit Card: Synchrony Bank will donate the monetary
equivalent of one meal for each Walmart Credit Card transaction made at Walmart stores and on Walmart.com during the campaign, up to $750,000.
Thanks for fighting hunger in our communities with Walmart and Feeding America Southwest Virginia!
