Woodforest Charitable Foundation donates $1,850 to Fredericksburg Area Food Bank
FREDERICKSBURG, VA –Woodforest Charitable Foundation makes a $1,850 contribution to Fredericksburg Area Food Bank. The funds will support the Food Bank’s Club Kids Program.
Created in 1982, the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank helps to provide nutritious food to over 200,000 people each year through a network of 78 non-profit organizations. Last year the Food Bank distributed over 3.4 million pounds of food and grocery product to families and individuals in need in a five-county service area. Each month, partner agencies serve more than 17,000 individuals that are at-risk of hunger. Of those 17,000 more than half are children and senior citizens.
The Club Kids is an after-school feeding program that provides snacks to income-qualified children. This program runs in conjunction with mentoring, homework, recreation programs existing in schools and other non-profit agencies. “With Woodforest’s donation we are able to provide food for hungry, income-eligible children participating in after-school programs,” stated Oya Oliver, Executive Director of Fredericksburg Area Food Bank. “We greatly appreciate the Foundation’s continuing support of our mission to provide nutritious food to children at risk of hunger.”
