McPHERSON – The Howard G Buffet Foundation is doubling every dollar donated to Feeding America, up to $50,000, through Farmers Union during this holiday season.
“For every dollar you donate to Feeding America, the challenge grant will match that dollar and the donated funds return to the state from which the donations zip code was sent. What else can one do to double their contribution so easily?” Donn Teske, Kansas Farmers Union president, said.
Feeding America’s network members supply food to 37 million Americans each year, including nearly 14 million children and 3 million seniors, through more than 200 food banks across the United States.
“Feeding America is the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity. It is a well-respected and very efficient relief charity. 96 percent of donations go directly to the restocking of our food pantries, so there is very little overhead,” Teske said.
