Feeding America has received a grant of $750,000 from the Nationwide Insurance Foundation.
The Nationwide Insurance Foundation is supported by Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, Columbus, Ohio, the parent of Nationwide Financial Services Inc.
Feeding America, Chicago, says its national office will share the Nationwide donation with 19 member food banks in communities where Nationwide associates live and work.
Nationwide also helps the Feeding America program find volunteers. In 2009, 2,200 Nationwide associates worked in the Mid-Ohio food bank for about 5,800 hours. Nationwide accounted for about one-fourth of the food bank volunteers, the company says.
