We need your help, please vote EVERY DAY and share through Facebook at www.walmart.com/fighthunger. Your votes can make a difference in our community. Funds from this grant will provide healthy produce, dairy and meat to our Mobile Food Pantry and $15,000 will support our partner agency, Bible Baptist Church of Erie, to purchase a cooler/freezer for their food pantry.
