RiverWood Bank Impacts Hunger Locally

Web posted April 9, 2019
RiverWood Bank customers and employees came together donating nearly 3,000 pounds to local food shelves in nine northern and central Minnesota communities.

In Minnesota, 1 in 11 people struggles with hunger—and of them 1 in 8 are children according to FeedingAmerica.org. As a community bank, RiverWood values making an impact in the communities that we serve.

Locally, the Salvation Army Food Shelf Brainerd was the recipient of 169 pounds of food and household goods and Crosslake Food Shelf received 68 pounds.

“Our local food shelves were grateful for the donations to help jump start FoodShare Month in March,” said Bart Taylor, Regional President at RiverWood Bank. “Thank you to all who joined with us to make a difference in our community.”

To recognize the effort RiverWood Bank employee-owners made during the food drive, RiverWood Bank is donating an additional $100 to the Salvation Army Food Shelf Brainerd and Crosslake Food Shelf in April.
