Northeast Iowa Food Bank receives $180,000 in grants

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Northeast Iowa Food Bank is getting $180,000 from the Walmart Foundation.

The money is coming from two grants.  $100,000 was awarded to the non-profit from Walmart's Associate Choice Program, an online campaign where Walmart associates vote for a non-profit of their choice.

The remaining $80,000 is from Walmart's State Giving Program.

The Northeast Iowa Food Bank says the grant will help with "capacity building and perishable expansion."

Walmart and the food bank will hold a check presentation on Wednesday.
