Pantex respresentatives responded to the urgent request for funding from High Plains Food Bank Executive Director Zack Wilson with a donation to the Food Bank’s Kids Café.
“Kids Cafe is an opportunity to not only feed children, many of whom suffer from food insecurity, but also to focus on the importance of healthy ingredients that can still taste good when prepared with care. Without proper nutrition, children struggle to learn and grow properly. For just $2.00, the Kids Cafe can provide a hot, nutritious meal to a child,” according to Zack Wilson, executive director of HPFB.
Kids Café serves 8,000 households every month, and is facing some major cutbacks that could result in that number being negatively impacted. They are in a critical area when it comes to fundraising and are having to scale back a program for the first time due to funding issues. When board members reached out to CNS for assistance, the call was answered and plans were put in place to help out the HPFB.
“For decades, Pantexans have supported numerous civic and non-profit organizations that serve our neighbors and the people of the Panhandle. It is in that spirit of giving and helping others that each and every Pantex employee should feel that they are a part of this gift to the High Plains Food Bank and the Kids Café,” said Pantex Deputy Site Manager Todd Ailes.
