Let’s Fight Hunger Together with Walmart

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know that September is Hunger Action Month?
Have you heard about the Golden Spark promotion? It's where Walmart is workng with their customers, suppliers and associates nationwide to donate up to 53 million meals to Feeding America and giving $2.5 million for hunger relief. This is so important as 50 million Americans don’t know where their next meal will come from at some point this year—that’s one in six Americans that need hunger relief.

It makes me so sad to know that so many Americans are going hungry. It makes me even sadder knowing that so many of these Americans are children. We really need to be Fighting Hunger TogetherFighting Hunger Together so that we can ensure that everyone is getting what they need. There are so many ways you can help. I love when the postal service lets us leave food donations and I try to make at least one food truck donation a year for our local community.

Through October 12th, customers will be able to generate meal donations for Feeding America by purchasing select products from participating food suppliers (General Mills, Kellogs, Unilever, Kraft Foods, and ConAgra Foods) at Walmart stores and following instructions on the packaging, engaging in the “Give Meals” section of www.walmart.com/hunger, or using a mobile app to generate meal donations for Feeding America.

Did you know that by participating in the Golden Spark Promotion for a chance to win $50K for your community? Walmart will randomly award 40 (YES FORTY!) “Golden Sparks” valued at $50,000 each to consumers who participate in the Fighting Hunger Together Golden Spark Promotion to help stop childhood hunger!

How have you ever had to go hungry? Have you ever been able to help feed your community? What ways have you helped?

    This is wonderful! I know people sometimes give companies like Walmart a bad rap because they may be creating a t store monopoly…but look at how much they help create jobs and then go do something like THIS. I mean, there are other companies out there who do nothing at all.

    I have never had to feel true hunger pangs but I have known what it is to be a single mom and not know where the next gallon of milk, loaf of bread or mac and cheese box was coming from. We lived a while like a college kid when going through a rough time, three kids and I. It is sad so many women stay in bad marriages…abusive marriages because someone holds this very issue over their heads. I was lucky to get out and I do know how easy it is to fall into a situation where you worry if you can feed your kids or keep the heat/water/electricity on. Big companies who make billions who have empathy and human kindness and a decent heart to help the innocent kids and elderly, handicapped, wayward soldiers…we are thankful for them. Especially now when so many families have been hit and it is so hard for us to donate to ANYTHING right now.

  2. Such a great post. I’m glad they are doing something to fight hunger. There are many people out there that have trouble making ends meet.
