As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving with our friends and families, we are mindful of the challenges and stress the holidays can bring for some of the families in our communities.
One of those challenges is hunger.
This holiday season we’re helping to address this issue and providing grants – $10,000 in total – to community health centers to ensure that their patients have a little more food on their tables. These grants are an expansion of our commitment to fighting hunger and food insecurity. During the summer months, we collaborate with Project Bread to bring more than 450,000 meals to children throughout the communities we serve.
The hunger assistance grants will help health centers to provide quality, coordinated care that includes helping fill the hunger gap and making sure patients have enough to eat.
