Bank of America Works to End Hunger with 2:1 Match
Many of our supporters know that every $1 that is donated to MANNA FoodBank can provide enough food for three meals. Thanks to Bank of America, now through December 31st, every $1 can mean 9 meals! Through Give A Meal, for every dollar donated to Feeding America or a Feeding America food bank, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will give $2 more, up to $1.5 million – giving you the opportunity to triple your impact. In addition, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation is making a separate $1 million contribution to Feeding America’s national office.
“We are fortunate to have a great partner in Bank of America fighting side-by-side with us to end hunger,” said Bob Aiken, CEO of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization. “Their commitment to hunger runs deep – from their headquarters to their local offices to their customers. We know we can’t end hunger alone. Only working together can we end hunger and make sure that all of our friends and neighbors have enough food.”
Individuals can donate to the campaign online by visiting feedingamerica.org/bankofamerica or bankofamerica.com/give. Make sure to enter your zip code so that your donation will be earmarked for MANNA and Western North Carolina.
“Families shouldn’t have to choose between buying food and putting money towards housing or medical care, yet many face that trade-off every day,” said Kerry Sullivan, president of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. “Fighting hunger is central to our efforts to lift families out of poverty and bring economic stability to our communities. Give A Meal is one way we can help create a successful path to making financial futures better.”
