During September, we are accepting donations for Feeding Texas– the state association representing all of the food banks in Texas. Funds will be raised through our Co-op Nickel program with donated bag refunds and extra change. If you wish to donate extra funds via a check, you can make it out to Feeding Texas with “Hurricane Harvey” in the memo field.
Feeding Texas is able to target funds raised during disasters to help those in need most. They will be working with state and federal officials, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, as well as the national Feeding America network to coordinate the delivery of food and other material aid to the communities affected by Hurricane Harvey in the weeks and months to come.
Thank you to Story County Plant a Row for the Hungry for allowing us to postpone their planned Co-op Nickel month until October to accommodate hurricane relief efforts.
