The Food Bank of Siouxland is pleased to announce they have been awarded a $100,000 grant from the S. L. Gimbel Foundation, a component fund at The Inland Empire Community Foundation, based in Riverside, CA.
“With food costs at an all-time high and the price of seemingly everything going up, we are so incredibly grateful to be chosen for this grant,” Executive Director, Jacob Wanderscheid says. “This grant will be a tremendous help in the fight against hunger around Siouxland.”
Grant funding will go toward the purchasing of food, including protein, vegetables, various pasta items and more throughout the year. The Food Bank of Siouxland has previously received smaller grant awards from the S.L. Gimbel Foundation for seven of the last ten years. This year’s award is the largest grant received from the foundation to date.
The Inland Empire Community Foundation is the oldest and largest community foundation serving the Inland region, helping individuals, families and businesses to make a meaningful difference on issues they care about in the community through permanent charitable funds.
