Bimbo Bakeries USA, Inc. is teaming up with Walmart for its 2022 “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign. Now in its ninth year, the campaign works with local Feeding America food banks to help secure meals for those facing food insecurity.
Each day one in eight Americans faces hunger and food insecurity, a problem affecting every community in the country. To help combat this issue, Walmart is working with national brands and organizations to benefit all 200 Feeding America member food banks.

One dollar helps secure at least 10 meals for local member food banks through Feeding America.
Eligible products include Sara Lee Classic Wheat, Sara Lee Honey Wheat, Sara Lee Whole Grain White, and Sara Lee Butter Bread; Nature’s Harvest Honey Wheat, Nature’s Harvest Butter Wheat, Nature’s Harvest 100% Whole Wheat, Nature’s Harvest Healthy Habits Light Multigrain, Nature’s Harvest Healthy Habits Smooth Wheat, and Nature’s Harvest Healthy Habits White made with Whole Grain; Thomas’ Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins, Thomas’ Light Multigrain English Muffins, Thomas’ Original English Muffins, Thomas’ Plain Bagel Thins, Thomas’ Plain Mini Bagels, Thomas’ Plain Bagels (20-oz.), and Thomas’ Everything Bagels (20-oz.).

Spark Change.’ campaign,” said Jeff Hendrix, vice president of sales at Bimbo Bakeries USA. “Bimbo Bakeries USA recognizes the importance of ending hunger and is dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work.”
