Helping those who have food at the top of their holiday wish list

Helping those who have food at the top of their holiday wish list 662 467 Harry Chapin Food Bank

All children make lists asking for toys, games and other gifts that they think will bring happiness during the holidays. But for children whose families struggle with hunger, food is first on the holiday wish list. Your generous gift can grant that wish. Help us make the light of the holidays shine in the eyes of a hungry child. Give the gift of nourishment this holiday season.

$25,000 1:1 donation match

Another way to help us feed those in need during the holidays is by giving to the Wells Fargo Holiday Food Bank campaign. This campaign continues through Dec. 31 and pledges up to $5 million to Feeding America and its network of 200 food banks, of which Harry Chapin Food Bank is a member.

Here’s how it works:
Of the $5 million, $3 million is pledged to the Feeding America national office.
The other $2 million is targeted for the member food banks. Of that amount:

  • $1 million will be split equally among the 200 food banks, which will receive $5,000 each.
  • $1 million will be used for a 1:1 donation match, up to $25,000 per food bank and up to $5,000 per donor. So every monetary gift to Harry Chapin Food Bank will be matched up to $25,000 through this campaign.

How you can help: Give online at Or, text MEALS to 91990. You can also give at your Wells Fargo ATM, and the gift will go to the food bank in your billing zip code.

In addition, Wells Fargo is turning all its branches into Wells Fargo “Food Banks,” accepting donations of nonperishable foods that will be delivered to the food bank in their area.

We are so grateful to Wells Fargo. This unique matching opportunity is the perfect way to help us finish out the year as strongly as possible.
