HOUSTON, April 28, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Wallis Bank, a full-service community bank, recently dedicated time to help fight childhood hunger throughout Houston communities. Over two days, employees of the Bank volunteered at Kids' Meals, Inc., an organization committed to ending childhood hunger, to pack nearly 3,000 bags with trail mix, which were included in lunch bags for food-insecure children without access to free school-based meal programs. These meals are delivered directly to the homes of deserving children across the Houston area.
Kids' Meals, Inc. is a social services organization dedicated to delivering healthy meals to food-insecure children under the age of six throughout Houston. With a mission to provide essential resources for families and end the cycle of poverty, the organization has delivered more than eight million healthy meals across 42 Houston-area zip codes since 2006. One in four Houston children are food-insecure; to help reduce this number, Kids' Meals, Inc. delivers meals to about 7,883 preschool-aged kids each weekday.
Wallis Bank supports Kids' Meals, Inc.'s incredible effort to end childhood hunger and will continue to partner with several organizations and school districts as part of their ongoing commitment to give back to local communities.
