Fight Hunger. Spark Change with Walmart and Sam’s Club

By , April 22nd, 2019 1:44pm

 

Food insecurity is an issue facing families in communities across the country, and according to the USDA, one in eight Americans currently struggles with hunger at some point during the year. Walmart, Sam’s Club, Feeding America and member food banks are committed to providing meals to people in need, and with the sixth annual nationwide “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign, Walmart and Sam’s Club are calling on customers and suppliers to join them in helping support people struggling with hunger.

April 22 thru May 20, 2019

There are three ways customers and members can help fight hunger in their local community during the campaign –

o Purchase Participating Products: Customers and members can purchase participating products in stores and clubs or online to donate

  • Each participating item purchased at Walmart will unlock a donation from the supplier equivalent to at least 1 meal secured on behalf of local food banks.
  • Each participating item purchased at Sam’s Club will unlock a donation from the supplier equivalent to at least 5 meals secured on behalf of local food banks
  • This year, there are 267 participating products from 18 suppliers –  Bush Brothers, Campbell’s, Conagra Brands, Cliff Bar, General Mills, Gold Peak Tea, Great Value, Hidden Valley, JM Smucker, Kellogg, Kraft Heinz, McCormick, Motts, PepsiCo, Post, Uncle Ben’s, Nature Nate’s Honey and Unilever.

o Donate In-Store: Customers and members can donate the amount of their choice at manned registers and self-checkouts ($1 helps secure at least 10 meals on behalf of local Feeding America food banks).

o Online Donation: Customers and members can donate the amount of their choice online at www.feedingamerica.org/walmart

· All donations made from sales in stores and clubs will be made on behalf of Feeding America member food banks and will stay in the communities serviced by those food banks.

All Walmart and Sam’s Club stores within the Kansas Food Bank’s  service area are participating.  Funds collected will benefit the Kansas Food Bank helping us provide missing meals for our neighbors in need.

 

Kansas Food Bank Receives Record-Setting Donation from Delta Dental of Kansas

By , March 21st, 2019 11:41am


WICHITA – Today, the Kansas Food Bank will receive the largest one-time operational donation in its history thanks to Delta Dental of Kansas.

The $500,000 donation will focus on providing fresh fruit and vegetables and additional healthy foods choices such as low sodium and whole grain options for urban and rural communities throughout the state.

“March is National Nutrition month and we are pleased to announce this donation to help provide healthy, nutritional options for kids and families across Kansas,” said Michael J. Herbert, President and CEO, Delta Dental of Kansas. “Food choices have a direct impact on oral health – especially in children.  We are honored to partner with the Kansas Food Bank to help distribute more healthy and fresh food options to those in need throughout our state.”

Fresh fruit and vegetables are often the most expensive and perishable items on any grocery list. This means those are the first to get cut when food budgets are tight.  Many of the families who will be served by this program had very limited access to healthy food choices on a regular basis.

The donation will be used for the summer programs in rural areas of the state and to increase distribution of healthy food choices across the Kansas Food Bank’s 73,000 square mile service area.

“We are extremely grateful for the support of Delta Dental of Kansas,” said Brian Walker, President & CEO, Kansas Food Bank. “This historical donation will provide new healthy food choices for thousands of families in our state. It will allow us to take our program to the next level with more nutritious and fresh options and new distribution locations statewide.”

Delta Dental of Kansas is a long-time supporter of the Kansas Food Bank providing thousands of dental care kits for backpacks each year to continue oral health education for Kansans.

Neighborhood of Good® with Lauren Alaina

We are so proud to be a part of this effort with State Farm’s Neighborhood of Good and Lauren Alaina.  Lauren visited the Kansas Food Bank back in November when she was here in concert at Intrust Bank Arena.  She and several of her fans came in to help pack Food 4 Kids packets and discovered the magic that volunteering here at the food bank brings.
