This week Walmart awarded Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida a check for $2,000 through their Volunteerism Always Pays (VAP) program. In April, Walmart Associates completed over 100 volunteer hours sorting and boxing donated product at our Food Rescue Center. Today a group of 20 devoted Walmart Associates headed back to our facility and volunteered their time again!
In addition to the VAP program, Walmart has donated the equivalent of over 1,600,000 meals since partnering with the food bank over one year ago.
Beyond that, Walmart also gifted Second Harvest Food Bank with a beautiful, brand new refrigerated truck last year as part of the company’s annual holiday giving campaign. The truck has served as a lifeline that has helped us to safely move the thousands of pounds of perishable and nutritious items donated weekly by Central Florida Walmart stores.
We are tremendously grateful to our partners. Thank you, Walmart, for your dedicated support!
