Walmart, Sam’s Club, Feeding America and the River Valley Regional Food Bank are kicking off the sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.”

The campaign will run from April 22 to May 20.

In partnership with the River Valley Regional Food Bank, Walmart and Sam’s Club invite the region’s shoppers to help fight hunger in their local community. The stores participating in the campaign are located in Fort Smith, Van Buren, Alma, Greenwood, Clarksville, Ozark, Mena, Paris, Dardanelle and Booneville.

There are three ways to participate – purchasing a participating item in-store or online, donating in-store or donating on Feeding America’s website.

With 749 million meals achieved over the last five years, customers in the River Valley can help the Feeding America network secure its 1 billion cumulative meals goal.

They can track the number of meals by visiting the link located here.

For every participating product purchased at U.S. Walmart stores, Sam’s Clubs or on Walmart.com during the campaign, the supplier will donate the monetary equivalent of at least one meal ($0.10) on behalf of a Feeding America member food bank, up to applicable limits.

Donate money to your local Feeding America food bank at participating Sam’s Club and Walmart stores in the U.S.
