American Family Insurance has donated $12,000 to the Great Plains Food Bank to help in the fight against hunger throughout North Dakota and western Minnesota.

The grant is enough to provide 36,000 meals to help feed hungry children, seniors and families in the region.

“We are extremely grateful to the American Family Dreams Foundation for this generous grant to assist in our food recovery and distribution efforts,” said Great Plains Food Bank CEO Steve Sellent. “Throughout the state of North Dakota, one in nine individuals struggle with food insecurity and this grant will allow us to provide even more nutritious food to ensure they have the nourishment they need to stay healthy.”

Now it its 35th year, the Great Plains Food Bank serves as North Dakota’s only food bank. Its partner network includes 213 food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, and other charitable feeding programs operating in 99 communities across N.D. and Clay County, Minn.

Since 1983, the Great Plains Food Bank, through its partners and programs, have distributed more than 185 million pounds of food to children, seniors, and families in need.
