Did you know that 1 in 8 Americans (that’s 40 million Americans) struggle with food insecurity? As a Mom, those numbers are terrifying. No person should ever go hungry. I’m honored to share that Walmart and Feeding America® are doing something about it! Now through May 20th, you could help secure a meal by doing something that you’re probably already doing. When you purchase a select item at a Walmart store or at Walmart.com, you’ll help secure a meal through Feeding America for families in need. Join me in participating in Walmart’s 6th Annual “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign.

“Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” is a long-standing effort in which Walmart aims to end food insecurity in local communities across the US by partnering with Feeding America, brand suppliers and customers to help secure meals for those in need.

During our last trip to Walmart, I was able to pick up the following 6 participating items:

McComick Original Taco Seasoning Mix

Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice: Spanish Style

Birds Eye Broccoli Florets

Birds Eye Sweet Corn

Pace Chunky Salsa

Gold Peak Sweet Tea

Alongside some of our favorite ingredients, I was able to create this Taco Bowl Bar for my family, which is always a huge hit! During checkout, I also chose to donate additional $ to the campaign and I encourage you to do the same. Every dollar helps! You can find all of the participating items here.
