Feeding America Thanks Its Partners For Teaming Up To Help Fight Hunger

In the news release, Feeding America Thanks Its Partners For Teaming Up To Help Fight Hunger, issued 02-Apr-2013 by Feeding America over PR Newswire, we are advised by the organization that the fourth paragraph, second sentence, should read "Walmart will deliver $3 million in grants for hunger-relief programs" rather than "Walmart and its partners in 'Fighting Hunger Together' will deliver $3 million in grants for hunger-relief programs" as originally issued inadvertently. The complete, corrected release follows:

Feeding America Thanks Its Partners For Teaming Up To Help Fight Hunger

Walmart Brings Ten Corporate Partners Together to "Fight Hunger Together"

CHICAGO, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Walmart and ten other leading Feeding America corporate partners are joining forces to raise awareness of the issue of hunger and award $3 million to Feeding America food banks and their partner agencies to help fight hunger in their local  communities.

The partners included in the Walmart "Fighting Hunger Together" campaign, include: Campbell's Soup, ConAgra Foods, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, General Mills, Kraft Foods Group, Kellogg Company, Mondelez International, Nestle USA, PepsiCo and Unilever.

"We are grateful and appreciative that we have such dedicated partners in helping to fight hunger in our communities," said Bob Aiken, president and CEO of Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief charity. "Hunger affects every community in the United States, and we know it takes the commitment of the public, government and our corporate partners to help make sure that everyone in America has access to healthy and nutritious food."

According to the USDA, more than 50 million Americans live in food insecure households, and nearly 17 million of those impacted are children. To address this issue, Walmart will deliver $3 million in grants for hunger-relief programs and generate the equivalent of up to 35 million meals* for local Feeding America food banks and their partner agencies across the United States.

The public can help join the fight by visiting Walmart's Facebook page and casting a vote for a Feeding America food bank or partner agency in local communities across the country that are eligible for a grant. Voting will take place throughout the month of April and winners will be announced beginning in May.

Feeding America, through its network of more than 200 food banks and 61,000 partner agencies, helps provide food to 37 million Americans each year, including nearly 14 million children and 3 million seniors.
