I mentioned earlier how you can help fight hunger through the Backpack program, and today I’m sharing how you can help choose where funding goes to help fight hunger through the Golden Spark Campaign.
I don’t know if you know this but Walmart has made huge donations to the Fighting Hunger cause. Through the campaign, they’ve given 594 million pounds of food and over $122 million in grants to communities everywhere!
Through October 14, Walmart will randomly award 40 “Golden Sparks” valued at $50,000 each to consumers who participate in the Fighting Hunger Together Golden Spark promotion. The winners will choose a community to receive the funding to start or expand a backpack program that provides vital meals to food-insecure children during weekends when they do not have access to free- and reduced-price school meals. You have through October 16th to get your own entries in so hurry! It can make a huge difference in your community, and most importantly, in a starving child’s life.
