The Food Bank of Northern Nevada has won a $45,000 grant from Walmart, which it will use for its summer food program.
Food Bank representatives say it came in 12th out of 132 food banks nationwide in Walmart's 'Fighting Hunger Together' campaign. Voting ended Monday night on Facebook.
The top 40 food banks won money.
Last summer, the Food Bank of Northern Nevada handed out 66,000 meals to kids during the summer months. And this year, officials want to reach out to even more children whose families qualify for the help.
"To you, for every vote, share, shout-out and stride to the finish, we thank you...it will be a brighter summer for area children because of you."
