One in eight Americans in communities across the U.S. struggle with hunger, 37 % of households in Sarasota and 60% in DeSoto county struggle to afford their basic needs. This year, to raise awareness and combat the issue, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Feeding America, and All Faiths Food Bank kicked off the sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” (FHSC) campaign, which will run from April 22 to May 20.
In partnership with All Faiths Food Bank, Walmart and Sam’s Club invite shoppers to help fight hunger in their local community. There are three ways to participate – purchasing a participating item in-store or online, donating in-store or donating on Feeding America’s website.
With 749 million meals achieved over the last five years, Sarasota customers and members can help the Feeding America network secure its 1 billion cumulative meals goal in three ways. You can track the number of meals by visiting www.walmart.com/fighthunger
