Walmart and Sam’s Club Address Hunger in East Texas through Fight Hunger. Spark Change. Campaign
“East Texans are struggling with the rising costs of inflation on everything from gas to food and anything the community can do to alleviate the challenges our neighbors are facing is very much appreciated,” said Dennis Cullinane, CEO of the East Texas Food Bank. “Walmart and Sam’s Club are a great partner in the fight against hunger and we are thankful for their suppliers, members and customers for their generous support.”
The campaign will run in store and online from April 18-May 15. There are three easy ways to support the 1 in 5 East Texans who are hungry.
- For every participating product purchased in store or online at Walmart.com or SamsClub.com, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of at least one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank at Walmart and five meals ($0.50) at Sam’s Club, up to applicable limits. See specially marked packages for full details.
- Donate at check-out in stores or clubs or round up at Walmart.com.
