Through the end of December, your giving has triple the impact! For every $1 you donate, Bank of America’s Charitable Foundation will give $2 more. To participate and have your donation matched, give through Feeding America’s weblink. As a national matching program for food banks, the gifts are made through an online portal with our national organization, Feeding America. To designate your local food bank, enter your zip code and your entire gift and the match will be forwarded to Roadrunner Food Bank in March 2017. Bank of America will match any individual’s gift up to $1,000 per donor with a maximum match of up to $50,000 per Feeding America affiliated food bank.
