Wells Fargo and Feeding America are joining together to fight hunger this holiday season. Wells Fargo is hosting a holiday mobile pop-up food bank at Discovery Green as part of its second annual Holiday Food Bank Program. Community members can stop by the pop-up to donate non-perishable food items that will benefit the Houston Food Bank.
Wells Fargo kicked off the program with a $4 million donation to Feeding America®, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the U.S. The company also will match up to an additional $1 million in consumer monetary donations to Feeding America, potentially bringing Wells Fargo’s total contribution up to $5 million. The organization estimates that, with every $1 contribution to Feeding America providing 10 meals, Wells Fargo will help secure more than 40 million meals for people in need. According to a recent study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1 in 8 U.S. households currently experience hunger, not knowing where their next meal will come from.
Wells Fargo is also collecting non-perishable goods at its 170+ branches across the Greater Houston area, as well as its 5,700 brank locations across the country.
You can also make a monetary donation to Feeding America through the Wells Fargo ATM or online at wellsfargo.com/foodbank. Wells Fargo credit card customers can donate Go Far rewards points in support of Feeding America or the nonprofit partner of their choice. Each $1 in rewards equals 1 point.
