      Prevent Heartland children from going hungry with a few clicks

      Would you like the help stop childhood hunger in the Heartland? If you answered yes, you can do just that thanks to Walmart with just a few clicks of the mouse. All you have to do is go to and vote for The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri. The top 40 food banks with the highest votes get a $45,000 grant towards their cause. Right now the heartlandâ??s region is on the bubble which means there is a chance we wonâ??t get the grant. So, every vote counts.

      â??We are one of them that gets a chance to receive $45,000. We need everyone to get out and vote and you can vote every single day at,â?? said Susan Dublin, Regional Coordinator, The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.

      â??$45,000 will contribute to 250 children being supported through the buddy pack program for the entire year,â?? said Ben St. Pierre, a Walmart Shift Manager.

      The website once again is To enhance the heartlandâ??s chances of winning the $45,000 grant, be sure to vote everyday. The contest ends April 30.
