Walmart Fight Hunger. Spark Change. Campaign

 

Walmart's Fight Hunger. Spark Change. Campaign

Walmart's Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign is focused on raising money for Feeding America member food banks across the country, including Tarrant Area Food Bank. There are three ways you can get involved:

  • Donate on behalf of a local Feeding America food bank at the cash register during checkout.
  • Purchase one of 240 participating products at your local Walmart. Every participating item purchased equals one meal for the local Feeding America food bank.
  • Take a picture with six people who are committed to fighting hunger and post it on Twitter using the campaign hashtag #wesparkchange. This will help raise awareness about the one in six people who struggle with hunger in the U.S. Walmart will donate $10 for every qualifying post.
