As the effects of COVID-19 continue to be felt by our communities, hunger-relief organizations like the Great Plains Food Bank are facing high demand as an increasing number of people are turning towards emergency food assistance to feed their families. To help reinforce their fight against hunger during this time, Choice Bank has committed an early donation of $20,000.
The donation comes as a part of a $100,000 commitment that Choice made to the Great Plains Food Bank last year. The commitment entailed a $20,000 donation per year over the course of five years.
“Now, more than ever, we’re driven to stand by the communities we live and work in,” said Tara McFadden, SVP Chief Compliance Officer. “With so many families placed in uncertain situations, the work that the Great Plains Food Bank is doing is invaluable and we’re proud to continue supporting their efforts.”
Currently, the Great Plains Food Bank is still running their Mobile Food Pantry distributions and regular food recovery and distribution efforts as planned. There are also numerous ways to help support their continued efforts. Find out how to get involved by visiting their website at greatplainsfoodbank.org.
