East Texas Food Bank participating in 'Fighting Hunger Together' campaign

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - The East Texas Food Bank has been selected by "Feeding America" to participate in the Walmart Foundation's "Fighting Hunger Together" Facebook campaign. This campaign will award grants of $45,000 to 40 "Feeding America" food banks.

The award will be put to good use by providing a healthy meal for thousands of individuals, including children.

"This one works by everyone going to their Facebook page or the East Texas Food Bank and clicking on either one, and there's a link on the Websites," David Fears, the director of Harvest House, said. "They can click on it and they can vote for the East Texas Food Bank area to win the contest."

You're allowed to vote once a day until April 30 at midnight. If East Texas Food Bank wins, the proceeds will be divided among its members.
