Partner Spotlight: Bank of America

We say all too often that our work in the fight against hunger would not be possible without support from our community. Individuals, families, businesses and corporations contribute time and funds to our cause. Bank of America epitomizes a great corporate partnership, helping the FoodBank provide for our neighbors in need for nearly two decades.

“Bank of America has been a longtime partner in the fight against hunger, supporting every level of our organization – from volunteering to funding critical feeding programs,” said Debra Vizzi, President and CEO of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. “And we’re proud to have President of Bank of America, New Jersey Robert Doherty on our Board, sharing his expertise and commitment to our mission.”

Bank of America has financially supported the FoodBank through grants, employee giving and company matches, and its holiday Give A Meal campaign with Feeding America®. Over the last eight years, Give A Meal’s $2-for-$1 match raised $287,963 for important programs.

As a team, Bank of America employees commit hours to volunteering, doing everything from assembling Family Packs of weekend food for households in need to sorting donated items. Last year, Bank of America volunteers dedicated more than 100 hours to support our mission! Bank of America also funded the renovation of our Volunteer Center, where our volunteers are welcomed and oriented every single day.

“Bank of America is honored to work closely with the FoodBank and help support their mission to fight hunger and provide healthy and nutritious meals to families in need,” said Robert Doherty.

Our many thanks to Bank of America for being a critical partner in our efforts to end hunger in New Jersey!
