According to the USDA 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger.  As a mother the idea of food insecurity frightens and saddens me.  When 42 million people, including 13 million children are hungry in our country, we’re doing something wrong!

Luckily Walmart has committed to providing meal to people in need.  As the nation’s largest grocer, Walmart is in a unique position where they can engage with both suppliers and more than 140 million customers to help make a positive impact on the fight against hunger. 

During the “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” Campaign which runs from April 17 through May 15th, Walmart is aiming to reach a total donation of $3 million for Feeding America.

Feeding Tampa Bay

People say we live in paradise, we are surrounded by the beautiful beaches, pristine ocean waters, with the sun shining almost every day.  However, if you look deeper there is a large hunger issue, and according to Jayci Peters at Feeding Tampa Bay, “in Tampa Bay, almost 70% of the population is not even aware there is a food insecurity issue.”  That’s a scary thought!  Being relatively new to Florida, I am always humbled by the kindness of the people in Tampa Bay, but when we’re unaware of such a heartbreaking issue, it’s hard to help.

So, if you didn’t know hunger was in our backyard, you do now and Feeding Tampa Bay needs your help!

“ The one valuable asset that every person in our community has and can share is the gift of their time.  Come in and volunteer.  Most all food relief happens because volunteers supply the labor.  This is, after all, how food banking started to begin with.” – Jayci

Feeding Tampa Bay is a vital charity in our area, they offer several programs that improve the lives of our neighbors.  Including My Mobile Market which is a pop-up style grocery store that offers low-cost items.  They also work with back-to-work programs to help workers find good paying positions with the food bank.  Also, they work with different intern programs to provide training.  These are all in addition to their food distribution programs such as mobile food pantries.

These programs are making our community a stronger place and feeding our neighbors in need.  Now it’s up to us to give our time to Feeding Tampa Bay and engage with Walmart to “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” And remember;

“It’s not a character issue.  It’s your neighbor, your child’s teacher, the local firefighter or retired veterans who are needing help.  It’s those who’ve worked hard, leaned in but can’t make their financial ends meet.” -Jayci
