There are so many little moments in life that are easy to take for granted. Routine activities, like picking Knox and Andrew up from school and treating them to an afternoon snack, become so common that I forget how fortunate we are to not worry about where our next meal will come from. I’m honored to be a sponsored partner of Walmart’s 6th annual “Fight Hunger” campaign, which is an important reminder that 1 in 8 Americans struggles with food insecurity. Over the next couple of days, you can make a huge impact through super easy, small shopping purchases that can be done from your own home. Read on below for details on how you can participate!

Between now and May 20th, manufacturers of participating products purchased at Walmart and on will donate $0.10 to Feeding America®. This amount is enough to secure at least 1 meal on behalf of local food banks. That means that each item from the participating product list that you purchase secures 1 meal! Many participating products are probably some of your family’s household favorites — like Clif Bar’s Chocolate Chip Energy Bars, Bubly Sparkling Water, Gold Peak Sweet Tea, and Nature Valley Oats ‘N Honey Crunchy Granola Bars. By purchasing these items from Walmart through May 20th, you will be making a huge impact! Whether you stock up on goods that can live in your pantry — like Kraft Mac and Cheese, Cheerios, and JIF peanut butter — or purchase treats in bulk for your kid’s classroom or baseball team, you will be helping to secure meals for the 40 million Americans struggling with food insecurity. I’m personally stocking up on summertime snacks and staples for backyard dinner parties like Heinz ketchup, hamburger seasoning, taco seasoning, and RO*TEL diced tomatoes.

Since 2014 Walmart has helped secure over 900 million meals — let’s help them get to 1 billion! Thank you for helping me raise awareness for the food insecurity issue in our country and to help fight hunger this month with Walmart! Be sure to visit the Walmart website to shop the full range of products that give back this month. Each participating manufacturer has a maximum donation amount which is provided on the participating packages and on
