Food pantries are on the front lines every day in the fight against hunger. These facilities are vital to countless communities across the U.S., and they’re havens for the more than 49 million Americans* who struggle with hunger.

Walmart believes that no family should have to worry about where they’re getting their next meal. And we know that food pantries need help with the things that keep them operating – like freezers, ovens and kitchens that help them provide fresh meals. So this holiday season, we’re donating $1.5 million in grants to food pantries to give them the makeovers they need to continue serving the one in seven Americans facing hunger.

From now through Dec. 12, you can vote daily for your favorite participating local food pantry to receive a grant for a makeover this holiday season. The 75 food pantries that generate the most online votes will each receive $20,000 for a makeover.
