Your Vote Counts!
As part of their Fighting Hunger Together initiative, Walmart is giving out $3 million in grants for the most innovative and effective programs that help alleviate child hunger. The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC is in the running to win one of 100 grants, but we need your help to win!
The more votes we can get on Facebook, the better chance we have of winning a $45,000 grant from Walmart. The funds will be used to support five of our local Kids Cafes which provide at-risk school children with hot meals, tutoring, mentoring, nutrition education and physical activity on weekday afternoons. The grant would help purchase nutritious food (including fresh fruit), buy paper/plastic ware supplies, and pay for meal support (cook or offsite meal preparation.)
Here's how it works:
Now through April 30, log into Facebook and go to bit.ly/VoteFBCENC to vote for our Kids Cafes. You can vote once a day per Facebook account, so vote as often as you can.
Vote today and every day through April 30!
And check our Facebook Page often for fun reminders that you can share with your friends!
