Bank of America is partnering with the Kansas Food Bank to help provide basic needs to underserved and vulnerable communities. The main goal of this event is to distribute fresh produce boxes to individuals and families within the community. Over the course of the year, Bank of America is donating $75,000 in grants as a part of its efforts to help remove barriers to economic success and drive social progress in Wichita.
The check was presented at the mobile food distribution, hosted by the Kansas Food Bank in conjunction with the Urban League of Kansas to Brian Walker, President and CEO of Kansas Food Bank.
Rocky Genz (Marketing Executive with Bank of America) said that Bank of America has contributed $215,000 to the Kansas Food Bank since the pandemic to help with the growing concerns around food insecurity. Since 2017, Bank of America has provided $2.8 million to organizations in Wichita as part of their commitment to help advance economic mobility throughout the country. Bank of America representatives will be present at the upcoming mobile pantry event along with Wind Surge volunteers helping to distribute food to areas across the state which are underserved or have very limited pantry service.
