Matching Gift Opportunity!

$1=$2Wallace picture

You’re going to want to hear this!

To help connect more hungry families and individuals with vital meals this spring, The Dwane L. and Velma Lunt Wallace Foundation has issued a very generous $50,000 matching gift opportunity.

That means when you give today, you’ll be helping struggling neighbors like Aaron and his daughter, Isabella, access healthy food.

As a single parent, Aaron has his hands full raising his daughter while juggling a full-time job. Still, he does his best to ensure she eats plenty of nutritious meals so she can stay healthy.

But on Aaron’s limited income, affording healthier food at the grocery store can be challenging.

Will you stand with hungry neighbors like Aaron by donating to the Kansas Food Bank today?

Should we exceed the match amount, your gift will continue to be used responsibly to further the cause of hunger-relief in Kansas.

Your gift will go TWICE as far — but only if we hear from you by the May 31 deadline.

Thank you for your generosity. You’re truly changing lives – one meal at a time.
