County’s Food Bank Gets Bank Of America Neighborhood Grant

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has named the Palm Beach County Food Bank as a 2015 Neighborhood Builder. Since 2004, including this year’s newest Neighborhood Builders, Bank of America has invested more than $180 million, recognized more than 900 organizations and provided leadership training to nearly 2,000 nonprofit leaders nationwide through this initiative. A longstanding community partner, the Palm Beach County Food Bank is the only locally led and governed food bank in the county that distributes food to hunger relief agencies at no cost. The Bank of America Neighborhood Builders award provides $200,000 in flexible financing for the nonprofit along with leadership training for its executive director and an emerging leader.
