WalMart Fight Hunger Spark Change
April 6 - May 3, 2015
From April 6 to May 3, 2015 Walmart is teaming up with some of America’s favorite food manufacturers to fight hunger and spark change across the country. Through the 2015 Fight Hunger Spark Change campaign (formerly, Fighting Hunger Together) the public can raise money for Feeding America member food banks through three easy ways: in-store purchase, register donations and social media. The campaign will run in all U.S. Walmart stores and will give Walmart’s more than 250 million customers the opportunity to help fight hunger in their local communities.
One item helps provide one meal. Walmart is working with: Campbell’s, ConAgra Foods, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Kraft and Unilever with a goal to raise 75 million meals for Feeding America food banks. Between April 6 and May 3, the purchase of approximately 70 participating grocery products at Walmart will trigger a donation. For each product purchased, the manufacturer will donate $0.10 to Feeding America to help secure one meal on behalf of local member food banks.
Walmart customers will also be able to make donations at the register on behalf of their local Feeding America food bank. Signs at the register, will allow customers to donate in increments of $1, $2, or $5 to their local food bank.
Share your smiles to raise funds for the entire Feeding America network! During the campaign, Walmart will raise awareness about the one in six people struggling with hunger in the U.S through a social media challenge. All food banks stand to benefit! Here’s how it works:
Take a picture of six people who commit to fight hunger

Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.
