Pharr, TX– The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley, Inc. was recently awarded a $14,952 grant from The Knapp Community Care Foundation (KCCF) to support the food bank in providing food assistance to families in the Rio Grande Valley, as the need has soared as a result of the impact of the health and financial crises of Covid-19 and Hurricane Hanna.

“The Food Bank RGV wishes to thank the Knapp Community Care Foundation for their generous contribution to improve the health, wellness and nutrition of our most vulnerable in the Rio Grande Valley.
