WICHITA, Kansas – The Kansas Food Bank is competing for a grant that could help feed thousands of hungry Kansas kids.
Wal-Mart is sponsoring a competition to help fight hunger. The organization with the most votes will receive a $45,000 grant.
The food bank says they spend about $2 million each year feeding those in need, and about half that goes to feeding children.
Kansas Food Bank president and CEO, Brian Walker, says with the grant, they could fill about 13,000 backpacks of food and every bit helps.
The food bank currently serves about 7,100 children each week during the school year.
