JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 13, 2019) — Feeding Northeast Florida, the community’s largest hunger relief organization, will be able to help more families in need during Hunger Action Month. The regional food bank received a $2,500 Walmart Community Grant that will help feed children in our community.

During September’s Hunger Action Month, Feeding Northeast Florida (FNEFL) along with the Feeding America nationwide network of more than 200 food banks, are inspiring people to take action and raise awareness for food insecurity. More than 257,000 people in FNEFL’s eight-county service area depend of food pantries and meal services programs to feed themselves.

“With the Walmart Community Grant, we will continue to fight hunger by addressing social and health care issues,” said Feeding Northeast Florida President and CEO Susan King. “We will educate the community about food insecurity and help to improve the welfare of our community with this grant.”
