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. You can help support Foodlink by donating between now and Dec. 31, 2016. For every $1 you donate, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation will give $2 more – a total donation of up to $1.5 million nationwide.

Donations can be made at www.bankofamerica.com/give. Donors have the option of donating to Feeding America, or typing in their zip code and allocating money directly to their local food bank. There is a $5 minimum donation and Bank of America will make their 2-for-1 match for donations up to $1,000.

About 1 in 8 people in Foodlink’s service area struggle with issues of food insecurity. Providing consistent access to food and support toward financial stability can be critical for families facing poverty. Bank of America, Foodlink 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.

“Foodlink aims to ensure that our neighbors in need are getting enough nourishment to live healthy, productive lives – especially during the holiday season,” said Foodlink Executive Director Julia Tedesco. “We’re incredibly grateful for Bank of America’s generosity and commitment toward this mission.”
