Many people have lost their jobs which makes it hard to provide for their families. Even worse is the food shelters that would normally help are not receiving as many donations during spring.
In order to help fight hunger, Walmart has teamed up with food brands: ConAgra, General Mills, Kraft and Kellogg’s. It is called Fighting Hunger Together and is expected to generate 43 million meals for families in need.
We can also join the fight against hunger in-store or through Facebook.
Starting Monday, April 9th-30th, everyone can shop in-store and buy select products from ConAgra, General Mills, Kraft and Kellogg’s. There will be signs in the store and specially marked packages. Fighting Hunger Together will donate meals to Feeding America or Action for Healthy Kids (a non-profit fighting childhood hunger).
Walmart is also asking everyone to Vote to fight spring hunger with Walmart on Facebook. Starting Monday April 9-30 go to Facebook for the communities in need of hunger relief. I am voting for El Centro, CA. That area has an almost 30% unemployment rate! No one should ever go hungry. Walmart will donate a total of $2 million to the 21 communities receiving the most support: $1 million to the winner and $50,000 each to the 20 runners-up. Winning communities will be announced May 1st, 2012.
Walmart is also asking for everyone to spread the word. I know I will by Facebook, Twitter, and my blog. Fighting Hunger Together is a wonderful program to help feed America. You can vote daily on the Facebook campaign page.
Let’s join together to help feed those in need.
