Beaufort County Food Bank Asks For Your Vote To Win $20,000 Grant

Eagle's Wings Food Pantry in Washington needs your help to win $20,000. The Walmart Fighting Hunger Together grant would expand Eagle's Wings Backpack Program for the 2013-2014 school year which provides a sack of 2 meals to each child every Friday during the school year. Local churches help pack and distribute the meals.

Walmart started the Fighting Hunger Together Program in 2010 and this year will give $3million to 100 food banks and other nonprofits fighting hunger across the country. You can vote for "Eagle's Wings Ministry" on Facebook. You may vote once every day starting April 1st- April 30th. Just click on the link below.

Eagle's Wings says one in three children in Beaufort County lives in poverty and are at risk of not having something to eat at least twice a week.
