2. Customers can donate to their local Feeding America member food bank at the registers of Walmart stores. Donations of $1, $2, $5 or another amount will be accepted. There is no limit to what can be raised at the register! 100% of funds will be directed to local member food banks.

3. Digital Challenge: Sharing #FightHunger on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and using the campaign Snapchat filter will generate a donation of 10 meals* from Walmart. Walmart has made an initial donation of $1.5 million, which will be split nationally and locally. An additional $1.5M is being made available for the campaign period. The following actions generate a donation and will count towards drawing down the additional gift. 100% of incremental funds will benefit network members and funds will be divided evenly:

  • Liking, sharing or clicking on Walmart’s Fight Hunger. Spark Change. campaign content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
  • Creating or sharing content on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using #FightHunger
  • Using the Fight Hunger. Spark Change. filter on Snapchat, available on April 21st

Music to Fight Hunger

South Dakota native, Companyon, is a producer, singer, and songwriter with nine years of music making experience. Companyon has teamed up with Feeding South Dakota to fight hunger in his home state. 

For every download of his new song, Ø Closure, Companyon will donate $1 to Feeding South Dakota.

Listen to a sample or download Ø Closure. 

In purchasing a song, you and I have effectively teamed up with Feeding South Dakota in an effort to provide meals for those who are struggling or cannot afford them. This particular song comes from a place of non-answers, self-reflection, and struggling with the unknown. I've been there and it can be a deep dark pit to climb out of. But one of the surest ways to navigate these feelings is to instead turn outward and do something for somebody else. Nearly nothing can be more life-giving than doing good for others. And that's what we are going to do.
