Walmart has presented $75,000 to Harvest Hope Food Bank to help support struggling families in the Midlands.
The donation, given Monday at the Shop Road office, will provide 375,000 meals for families. Last month, the food bank served more than 32,000 Midlands area families.
“This grant will go far toward bringing meals to empty tables for our neighbors struggling with hunger on a daily basis,” said Harvest Hope CEO Denise Holland.
