2014 marks the bank’s fifth year supporting hunger relief networks nationwide
Hunger affects people of all ages and races, in communities large and small. Each year, more than 46 million people – one in seven Americans – rely on help from Feeding America and its more than 200 affiliate food bank members throughout the country.
For the fifth straight year, Bank of America is partnering with Feeding America to fight hunger. Thousands of Americans have already donated to Feeding America or one of its member food banks through the Give A Meal program, but there is still time to make a difference. With donations accepted through the holiday season, every dollar raised in partnership with Feeding America will help provide meals to individuals and families facing hunger.
“Nobody should have to choose between buying food and paying for basic services like electricity. Yet too many families face that trade-off every day,” said Kerry Sullivan, president of the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. “Fighting hunger is a key step to bringing economic stability to homes and neighborhoods. When that happens, we have a more successful path to making financial lives better.”
