Red Nose Day Will Benefit the High Plains Food Bank

AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR) – Money raised during a nationwide campaign tonight will work to help feed local children.

Red Nose Day’s goal is to help end child poverty.

"It is a national fundraising event that has really kind of accumulated from a worldwide fundraising event that we are proud to be part of and will help us prepare meals throughout the fall and it is definitely something that we need to keep up in doing but the important fact is that it does benefit us right here in this kitchen," said Zack Wilson, with the High Plains Food Bank.

Every year Zack Wilson says the High Plains Food Bank has been able to get $10,000 from the donations raised during the event to help feed local children through their kid’s cafe.

Even though it is a national campaign full of celebrities, Wilson wants people to know by donating tonight, you are making an impact locally.

"You are directly supporting kids in our area and it is such a great opportunity for us and good timing for us as well, that this event takes place because as we enter the summer months we are trying to amp up our awareness of what we are doing and we are about to start our summer meals programs and it is more critical this year really than it has been in years past."

The meals provided through kid’s cafe help to make sure children have nutritious meals during the school year and summer months.

"The Kids Cafe program is simply a meal that we provide every single weekday, you can see them preparing the meals behind us, we are going to schools, churches or apartments and feeding local kids," added Wilson.
