Lowcountry Food Bank Awarded Grant By The TD Charitable Foundation

The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, announced this month that it will provide $600,000 in grants to 24 food banks across the bank’s Maine to Florida footprint to help provide meals locally to families and individuals in need. The grants focus on food stability; healthy growth and development; and access to fresh food for underserved communities.

The grants will help food banks stock shelves to support thousands of people who are experiencing a lack of or limited access to food during this holiday season.

“TD is honored to work with food banks to fight hunger in our communities and provide assistance to people in need,” said Dominique Goss, Community and Foundation Manager, TD Charitable Foundation. “Through The Ready Commitment, the Foundation is proud to partner with community organizations to provide funding and solutions to help all people overcome the barriers to financial security.”
