Walmart:  Walmart's Fight Hunger, Spark Change campaign will run online and in all U.S. and Puerto Rico Walmart stores from April 2 – April 30, 2018. There are four easy ways to get involved and help fight hunger during the campaign this year:

1.Purchase Participating Products: For every participating product purchased at U.S. and Puerto Rico Walmart stores or on Walmart.com from April 2 – April 30, 2018, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal ($0.10) secured on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank, up to applicable limits.

2.Donate at the Register: Each dollar that Walmart customers in the U.S. and Puerto Rico donate at the register will be given to the local Feeding America member food bank(s), so donations stay in the local community.

  • Cashiers will ask customers to donate, and donations can be made in increments of $1, $2, $5 or an amount chosen by the customer.
  • Donating is also an option at the self-checkout (Scan and Go) register. Clicking “Finish & Pay” on totals over $10 will trigger the prompt with details on donating.

3.Online Acts of Support:

  • Generate meals for Feeding America food banks by engaging with the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign on social media:
  1. Facebook – Share a post from Walmart or influencers with official campaign content.
  2. Instagram – Create content with a black and white picture of food using the campaign hashtag #FightHunger.
  3. Twitter – Retweet a post from Walmart with campaign content.
  • 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.

4.Use the Walmart Credit Card: Synchrony Bank will donate the monetary equivalent of one meal ($0.10) for each Walmart Credit Card transaction made at Walmart stores and on Walmart.com during the campaign, up to $750,000.
