WHAT: For the 7th consecutive year, Feeding America® Bank of America and the Harry Chapin Food Bank are joining forces through Give A Meal . Through this partnership, we want to break the cycle and end hunger in communities like Southwest Florida and across the country. Join us in support of the Harry Chapin Food Bank this holiday season by donating to Give A Meal at www.bankofamerica.com/give. For every $1 you donate, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will give $2 more, up to $1.5 million in online donations nationwide.**
WHEN: Give A Meal runs through December 31, 2018.
WHY: Here in Southwest Florida, about 154,740 people are food insecure, which means they may not know where their next meal is coming from. Food security is a fundamental first step on the path to economic mobility and empowerment, which is why we are partnering with Feeding America and its nationwide network of 200 member food banks on Give A Meal for our 7th consecutive year. Bank of America, the Harry Chapin Food Bank, and the Feeding America network are working together to raise support, awareness, and action and to help ensure that families don’t have to choose between feeding their families and paying for the most basic of necessities like utilities, education and medical care. Bank of America supports hunger relief as part of its broader commitment to help advance long-term community sustainability and economic mobility for individuals and families.
** All donations, including the Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s matching donations, will go to the Feeding America network (the Feeding America National Office, or affiliated local food banks). For individual donations made to Feeding America through the Give a Meal ™ program before December 31, 2018, the Foundation will match each donation (up to $1,000 per donor) two-to-one, with a maximum total Foundation donation of up to $50,000 to any individual local food bank, and an aggregate maximum Foundation donation of up to $1,500,000 for all Feeding America programs. $1=10 meals secured by Feeding America® on behalf of member food banks. © 2018 Bank of America Corporation
