Did you know 1 in 8 American’s struggle with food insecurity? As moms, we want our children to have the opportunity each day to eat enough to help them grow and allow their bodies and brains to fully develop. So what exactly is food insecurity? It means the lack of consistent access to food to maintain a healthy life. Over 40 million American’s are affected by this and we can all do our part to help!
Walmart has joined Feeding America® for the 6th year in a row to Fight Hunger, Spark Change! This program secures nutritious meals for those in need. How does it work? When we shop at Walmart and buy 1 of the select items listed HERE ,the manufacturer will donate $0.10 to Feeding America® – enough to secure at least 1 meal on help secure a meal on behalf of local food banks.
I found 4 items from Walmart’s select list and created tacos for our family: Uncle Ben’s 60 Second Spanish Rice, McCormick Taco Seasoning, Pace Picante Mild Chunky Salsa and Bubly Lime Sparkling Water (we buy this regularly). Many of the items listed are items you most likely buy anyway, they make it simple to help give back!
