As Hunger Action Month come to a close, Second Harvest is asking for the public's help in a contest that could net them a $60,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation.
Fifty food banks across the nation will be selected for one of the grants based on the number of online votes they receive by October 5. Currently Second Harvest has barely more than 100, while the leaders are all in the thousands, but with nine days left to vote there's still time for a comeback.
Second Harvest is the only food bank in Washington state competing in the contest which began September 15.
Walmart is teaming up with acclaimed chef, cookbook author and TV host G. Garvin, and calling on the public to support their local food banks by voting online at www.Walmart.com/fighthunger.
