Walmart Foundation's Fight Hunger Together - What Can You Do?

This post brought to you by The Walmart Foundation. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s a sobering thought to realize that nearly 50 million Americans don't know where their next meal will come from. Forget about myself, as a parent I can not  imagine the pain of not only being hungry myself, but to not no how I am going to feed my children. would be enough to tare anyone a part. Most of these American's rely heavily on food banks and those who donate to them am. Unfortunately, with the arrival of spring traditionally comes a decrease in donation to local food banks.

Walmart is getting involved with the fight against hunger by teaming up with some wonderful brands; General Mills, ConAgra,Kraft, & Kellogg's.

Starting April 9th and running through April 30th consumers can also join in on the fight to stamp out hunger in-store or via Walmart's Facebook campaign by rallying support for communities in need of hunger relief. You will have the opportunity to vote between 200 communities in which the Department of Labor has determined to have the lowest unemployment rate – obviously  the high rate of unemployment through out the country has deeply impacted the hunger rate. The 21 communities with the most support will receive a share of a $2 million dollar donation thanks to Walmart. This works out to be 1 million for the community with the most support and $500,000 with the additional 20 communities.

Show your support with a Vote to fight spring hunger with Walmart  and by purchasing products from the above listed companies. By purchasing these brands you to can donate to feeding America or Action for Hungry Kids as well.

If your interested in learning more about which communities are eligible for voting, you can visit the Department Of Labor Report I was more than surprised to find my town on this report and of course will by showing support for PSL, Florida. After learning this shocking fact, I am also going to find our local food bank and do what I can to make a donation of my own.

I knew that ConAgra foods and Kraft were fighting hunger but didn't know about the others or that Walmart was involved.

Most communities in the US have problems with hunger. Not only is unemployment high, but even people who work are often not paid well enough to meet all their needs. I am glad when I see this recognized as it affects so many of us.

It was a good reminder to me today as I was cleaning out my cupboards and complaining about not having any of the things I wanted to make dinner, that many people would be very greatful to have any of the things that I have. I will do my part to look at the list and try to fit some of those items into my groccery shopping this week and find my local food bank so I can donate. Thank you for posting about this
