As the pandemic continues, food banks in Southern Nevada and across the country are facing ongoing challenges such as increased demand for their services and rising food prices. Three Square Food Bank, the largest hunger relief organization in Southern Nevada, declares there are now more than 363,000 members of the community experiencing food insecurity, while 1 in 4 children now lives in a food-insecure home.

This week, the Bank of America in Las Vegas announced a $60,000 donation to Three Square Food Bank through it's COVID-19 Employee Booster Initiative program, which the bank donated $100 for every bank employee who received a COVID-19 booster shot last month. For every $1 donated, Three Square Food Bank can provide three meals to the community. The bank’s donation will help providing 180,000 meals.

This most recent contribution adds to the $220,500 that Bank of America has already provided to Three Square Food Bank.

“Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we’re able to persist as Southern Nevada still deals with the lasting effects of the pandemic,” said Brian Burton, President and CEO, Three Square Food Bank. “Bank of America has been a longstanding partner and we are grateful to have them in our corner as we pursue our mission."

“As the effects of the pandemic continue to impact Las Vegas, hunger relief organizations are experiencing increased demand and higher costs to meet the needs of our neighbors and their families,” said Al Welch, President, Bank of America Las Vegas. “We will continue our commitment to help strengthen the communities where we live and serve, which is why we are investing in the health, safety and wellbeing of our teammates while also providing funds to help our local organizations fight food insecurity.”

Because vaccination boosters and reporting are voluntary and additional company contributions are reflected in the final amount, actual donation amounts differ from the number of boosters reported by bank employees. In partnership with local nonprofits, Bank of America has also distributed more than 38 million masks, 41,000 cases of hand sanitizer and 11 million gloves in local communities across the country.
