WHAT: For the 5th consecutive year, the Feeding America network and Bank of America are joining forces to support the Give A Meal program, which aims to reduce food insecurity in local communities around the country—and those right here in South Florida. You can help support Feeding America member food bank, Feeding South Florida, as it works to end hunger in our community. For every $1 you donate, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will give $2 more up to $1.5 million in online donations nationwide. Donations can be made at www.bankofamerica.com/give.
WHEN: Give A Meal launches at the end of September and runs through December 31, 2016.
WHY: Here in South Florida, 784,110 individuals in need of food assistance, 264,280 of whom are children. Providing consistent access to food and support toward financial stability can be critical for families facing poverty. Bank of America, Feeding South Florida, and the Feeding America network are working together to ensure that families don’t have to choose between putting food on the table and paying vital bills. Bank of America supports hunger relief as part of our broader commitment to help put people in need on a path towards success. Food security is a fundamental first step toward economic mobility and empowerment, which is why, for the 5th consecutive year, we are partnering with Feeding America and its network of 200 member food banks to support the Give A Meal program.
