Food Bank of the Albemarle is pleased to announce a grant award from Subaru of America, Inc. to support the organization’s general operating needs.

Subaru of America, Inc. and its retailers are dedicated to making the world a better place. To that end, they have donated 100 million meals to 199 food banks across the Feeding America network, which includes a generous$27,027 donation to Food Bank of the Albemarle for general operating expenses.  The Subaru grant to Feeding America and the Food Bank is part of the Subaru Loves to Help initiative.

Right now, millions of Americans are out of work and unable to provide adequate nourishment for themselves and for their families. In fact, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, one in four children in this country may face hunger, including 50,410 people and 16,170 children in Food Bank of the Albemarle’s 15 county service area in northeastern North Carolina.

Subaru is helping to contribute an additional 100 million meals to Feeding America, which will help food banks like Food Bank of the Albemarle secure the resources needed to serve people who are struggling during this time of uncertainty. “Once again, Subaru is working with Feeding America to help the millions of families struggling with hunger across the U.S.,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “As we continue to weather these unprecedented times together, we hope our contribution to Feeding America ensures the most vulnerable members of our communities are fed and cared for.”
