Kaiser Permanente Fresno is giving $45,000 in grants to local community-based organizations dedicated to feeding needy families in the Central Valley this holiday season.
Four $10,000 grants were awarded to the following organizations: Community Food Bank, to feed up to 1,000 families for a week; Poverello House, to provide healthy meals during the holidays; The Salvation Army for food boxes that will be distributed to nearly 1,500 needy families; and the Madera County Food Bank to feed needy families in the community. A $5,000 grant was also given to the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Fresno to provide turkey meals for 500 families.
“We are proud to partner with these community-based organizations that will ensure needy families in our Valley have a nutritious meal to enjoy this holiday season,” Kaiser Permanente Fresno Senior Vice President and Area Manager Debbie Hemker, RN, said in a statement. “We recognize the holidays can be a stressful time for some families, which is why Kaiser Permanente Fresno is committed to helping those in need during this season of giving.”
