Charity Spotlight: Feeding America

By July 13, 2016 No Comments

Did you know that your Charity Miles could be helping your local food bank? You might not even know it, but our Charity Partner Feeding America supports hundreds of food banks, soup kitchens, and shelters. 

One of these amazing community establishments is the High Plains Food Bank. Their mission (from the High Plains Food Bank website) is to alleviate hunger in the Texas Panhandle. Founded in 1982, High Plains Food Bank (HPFB) is a nonprofit organization serving as the clearing house for collection, storage, and distribution of donated and purchased grocery products, providing aide to the top 29 counties in the Texas Panhandle. 

HPFB partners with 165 different agencies, including churches, senior centers, child care facilities, halfway houses, soup kitchens, Kids Cafes, emergency pantries, shelters, and other nonprofits. 

They also run a Kids Cafe and a garden to teach about healthy eating. So, whether you’re working out, walking the dog, or playing Pokémon Go, log some Charity Miles for Feeding America. You never know who you’re helping in your community.
