PPG donates $6,000 to Wichita Falls Area Food Bank


Funding supports expansion of Kids Cafe childhood hunger program

PPG Industries Foundation has donated $6,000 to the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank to help expand its Kids Cafe childhood hunger program in Wichita County.

“We are very pleased to receive support from PPG to help us grow this important program,” said Mary Stengel, executive director, Wichita Falls Area Food Bank. “The funding is helping us to expand the program from one to six Kids Cafe sites in Wichita County, so we’ll be able to provide nutritious meals and snacks to as many as 550 children every day.”

Kids Cafe is a national program developed by America’s Second Harvest to feed hungry children in safe places where they naturally gather, such as the Burkburnett Boys & Girls Club where the Wichita County program began in 2005. Daily meals and snacks are supplemented with activities conducted by staff to teach children about health and nutrition, meal planning, making appropriate food choices, preparing meals for themselves, and food safety.

“PPG is strongly committed to supporting the communities where its employees work and live,” said Mike Derr, plant manager at PPG’s glass manufacturing facility in Wichita Falls. “We are proud to support the food bank in its efforts to feed more and more impoverished children in North Texas through the Kids Café program.”
