Exciting news – we are up for a Walmart grant and you can help us win!
As part of their Fighting Hunger Together initiative, Walmart is giving out $3 million in grants for the most innovative and effective programs that help alleviate child hunger. The Fredericksburg Area Food Bank is in the running to win one of 100 grants, but we need your help to win!
The more votes we can get, the better chance we have of winning a $45,000 grant from Walmart. The funds will be used to support out School Food Pantry Program.
Here’s how it works:
Now through April 30, go to our Facebook Voting Page to vote for our project. You can vote once a day, so please vote as often as you can.
Funding for child hunger programs is especially critical considering the need that exists. Here in our community, there are an estimated 11,700 children who struggle with hunger. The Walmart grant would go a long way to helping ensure that all children have access to the food they need to thrive.
Thanks again for all your support!
