The annual "Fight Hunger. Spark Change." campaign launched April 2 and will run through April 30 in all Walmart stores. Over the last five years, the campaign has raised more than $50 million to fight hunger, with funds benefiting local food banks across the United States. Locally, Second Harvest can benefit when you participate at any of the six Walmart stores in our four-county region.
What is new for this year's campaign?
Walmart is doubling their meal goal to 200 million, nearly tripling the participation of suppliers to 14, and introducing the Walmart Credit Card as a new way for customers to get involved. For each transaction using the Walmart Credit Card at Walmart and on Walmart.com, an additional meal* will be donated by Synchrony Bank. 100% of funds raised through in-store purchases will benefit Second Harvest in our region.
When you stop by any Walmart store you can still donate at the register. Also, Walmart and their suppliers have identified participating item purchased at Walmart or through Walmart.com which will unlock a donation equivalent to one meal* secured by Feeding America® on behalf of Second Harvest from each supplier.
