The Chattanooga Area Food Bank has received a $55,000 contribution to assist with the Summer Family Snack and School Mobile Pantry Programs.

The grant donated by the Walmart Foundation's State Giving Program will enable the non-profit organization to give those children who qualify a family snack bag to take home on the weekends during the summer.  This grant will provide 128,000 meals to children on weekends throughout the school year.

Chattanooga Area Food Bank serves 20 counties in Tennessee and Georgia. The Food Bank is leading a network of partners in eliminating hunger and promoting better nutrition in its region.
