Texas Border Business

PHARR, TX – The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley has received $30,700 in funding from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation and the company’s local Merrill Lynch offices to support the food bank’s ongoing response efforts to the surging demand for services brought on by the health and financial crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This crucial funding will enable the Food Bank RGV to provide up to 153,500 healthy and nutritious meals for those who are food insecure in the Rio Grande Valley through their Drive Thru Emergency Pantry services and partner agency distributions. 

“Food insecurity, a widely recognized need across Texas under normal circumstances, has been dramatically exacerbated by the economic impacts of coronavirus,” said Jessica Miller, San Antonio market president for Bank of America. “This grant came about because of the personal dedication and commitment from our Merrill Lynch teammates in McAllen and Bank of America’s longstanding focus on addressing critical needs that affect the communities we serve.”

Since May, Bank of America has made more than $114 million in philanthropic donations to local communities to help address pressing and growing needs related to the coronavirus crisis, which is incremental to the $250 million provided to nonprofits each year. Across Texas, the company has contributed over $5.2 million to local nonprofit partners so far this year.
