Second Harvest Food Bank looks for ‘likes’

    Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana is asking the public to help them click their way to a $45,000 grant from Walmart by voting for them in the “Fighting Hunger Together” initiative, a national campaign where money is awarded to programs that get the most votes for their innovative and effective programs that help alleviate child hunger.
    The public will decide what organization will receive the grants through a voting campaign at www.facebook.com/walmart that includes more than 300 different hunger relief organizations from across the country. The food banks with most votes will win grant money to be used to support local child hunger relief programs.
    “This Walmart grant would provide Second Harvest Food Bank with the resources needed to help ensure that our children have the food they need to learn and grow,” said Natalie Jayroe, President and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana.
    The public will be able to vote on their favorite child hunger programs through 11:59 p.m. EDT on April 30 at www.facebook.com/walmart.
