Fight Hunger. Spark Change.

The race to 1 billion meals is on! That's right, not a typo... we said 1 BILLION!

Walmart has joined forces with Feed America during the month's of April and May to secure 1 BILLION meals for local food banks across the county like our very own HACAP Food Reservoir which works everyday to distribute food in Eastern Iowa. 

While the fact that 1 in 8 Americans struggles with hunger seems daunting, there is a simple way for you to make an impact, and it's as easy as shopping for groceries! From now until May 20, 2019 money raised from participating products purchased at online or in store at your local Walmart or Sam’s Club will be providing a meal to person in need.

As of May 7, 2019 Walmart has so far secured 907,872,775 meals. Supporters can keep with the grand total count on Walmart's website at https://wm8.walmart.com/Hunger
