Grant helps food bank distribute 50,000 meals.
In partnership with the BP “Fueling Communities” program, Mid-Atlantic Convenience Stores (MACS), presented a check of $10,000 to FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank, NACS reported.
The grant is intended to help the food bank distribute 50,000 meals to the one-in-seven residents in central Virginia who live in food-insecure households.
Fueling Communities, a philanthropic program BP created to help local BP business owners care for their communities, worked with MACS to make the local grant possible.
MACS works continuously to fight hunger in the Mid-Atlantic region, where it operates. During this past holiday season, MACS’ Business Support Center associates collected more than 1,000 pounds of food for the Central Virginia Food Bank.
