The board of directors of United Way of Eastern New Mexico has approved a $5,000 supplemental grant to the Food Bank of Eastern New Mexico, according to a United Way news release.
The Sept. 3 fire that closed Walmart “for several weeks and maybe months,” has left the food bank “facing a significant gap because of the normal generosity of Clovis Walmart,” the release states.
United Way is also asking others to help the food bank, which serves five counties.
“We ask our community to reflect on the need to replace the 2,000 pounds of produce, meat and other food items that previously came from Walmart monthly,” the release states.
