Rent-A-Center recently matched a $5,000 donation from an anonymous donor and delivered 35 new Kenmore freezers to the Capital Area Food Bank and 13 of its partner agencies.
The donation will help agencies increase their food storage capacity and ultimately distribute more food to communities in need.
The CAFB and its 700 partner agencies are experiencing record numbers of families in need.
In addition to food distribution, the CAFB offers several nutrition and capacity building programs including the Top Shelf program
Top Shelf is a workshop series for emergency feeding programs that offers best practices and ways to increase the number of meals to residents struggling with hunger.
Through the generosity of Rent-A-Center, the food bank will be able to offer freezers as incentives to future participants of the Top Shelf program.
