LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

One in eight Americans in communities across the U.S. struggle with hunger, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, including 96,000 people across the South Plains. To raise awareness and combat the issue, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Feeding America® and the South Plains Food Bank are kicking off its sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” (FHSC) campaign, which will run from April 22th to May 20th.

In partnership with the South Plains Food Bank, Walmart and Sam’s Club now invite Lubbock 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, Lubbock customers and members can help the Feeding America network secure its 1 billion cumulative meals goal in three ways. They can track the number of meals by visiting www.walmart.com/fighthunger.

  • For every participating product purchased at U.S. Walmart stores, Sam’s Clubs or on Walmart.com during the campaign, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of at least one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank, up to applicable limits.
  • Donate money to your local Feeding America food bank at participating Sam’s Club and Walmart stores in the U.S.
  • Donate at feedingamerica.org/Walmart.

As we go into our sixth year of the ‘Fight Hunger. Spark Change.’ campaign, it’s exciting to approach the 1 billion mark in terms of charitable meals secured for Feeding America over the life of the program,” said Kathleen McLaughlin, chief sustainability officer for Walmart. “Food insecurity continues to affect communities across the United States. Working with Feeding America, our customers, members, associates and suppliers, Walmart and Sam’s Club aim to be part of the solution.”

Last year, South Plains Food Bank benefited from $63,000 dollars from Walmart and Sam’s Club’s commitment to fight hunger. To learn more about the campaign visit www.walmart.com/fighthunger.
