Irving Cares received an $8,000 grant from Bank of America to purchase foods not donated, perishable items such as milk, eggs and meat.
“Donated cash goes three times further at Irving Cares due to our procurement relationships with our vendors,” said
In a recent survey of food pantry clients: 100 percent said they were treated with dignity and respect; 100 percent said their order contained useful items; 95 percent said in the last 12 months they worried about having enough food; 68 percent said they didn’t eat because there wasn’t enough money for food, and 94 percent indicated the Pantry was ‘very helpful’ in preventing hunger in their household.
“Bank of America has been a good friend to Irving Cares for many years,”
