Food insecurity is an issue facing families in communities across the country, and according to the USDA, one in eight Americans currently struggles with hunger at some point during the year. Walmart, Sam’s Club, Feeding America and member food banks are committed to providing meals to people in need, and with our sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign, we’re calling on customers and suppliers to join us in helping support people struggling with hunger.

Quick Facts

  • 6th annual “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign will run in-store and online from April 22 – May 20, 2019.
  • For the first time, Sam’s Club and its nearly 600 locations, will be participating in this campaign.
  • 749 million meals have been secured to date and with the help of customers and suppliers, the goal for 2019 is to secure a cumulative of 1 billion meals.
