Missoula Food Bank hopes Facebook campaign pays off

MISSOULA - Missoula has gone wild over Facebook voting, and it could payoff. Not only is the city taking on Huntsville, Alabama to host the 2013 Social Media Tourism Symposium, but a Fighting Hunger Together Facebook campaign is also underway.

The Kids Table program at Missoula Food Bank is one of 300 programs that could receive a $20,000 grant.

"It's a really great opportunity, and a really easy way to advocate for kids living in our neighborhoods who are struggling with hunger, so we really hope people get out there. It's a one click vote, it's really easy," said Missoula Food Bank Community Relations Director Jessica Allred.

The public may vote once a day for the Missoula Food Bank throughout April, until 11:59 p.m. on April 30. Visitors to the page can award one "vote" a day. Once the voting has closed, the food banks that have received the most votes will split $3 million in funding from Walmart.
