BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- The latest retailer to respond to the nationwide food and grocery shortage in food banks this holiday season is Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. The company said yesterday it is donating 3 million meals, the equivalent of $1 million, to America's Second Harvest -- the nation's largest charitable hunger-relief organization.
The majority of the donation comes in the form of 50 food-filled trucks being dispatched to food banks servicing every state in the nation.
Wal-Mart said it was alerted to the food shortage through a call to action sent out by its philanthropic partner, America's Second Harvest-The Nation's Food Bank Network.
