Walmart

In 2014, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation committed to help provide over four billion meals to those in need in the U.S. over the next five years. Specifically, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation will donate an estimated three billion pounds of food to food banks across the nation. Walmart will strive for a third of its in-kind donation to include produce; up to one billion pounds. Additionally, the Walmart Foundation will help to strengthen the charitable food system infrastructure through grants to local, regional, and national hunger relief organizations, as well as expertise in logistics and other skilled areas for selected nonprofit organizations. Finally, the Walmart Foundation will provide grants to nonprofits working to increase access to federal nutrition programs. Through these efforts, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation expect to work directly with more than 4,000 partner organizations each year.
