Walmart announced Monday that it is providing $200,000 to the Kansas Food Bank.
Walmart said the move represents its commitment to fighting hunger.
"This very generous grant could not come at a better time for us," said Brian Walker, president and CEO of Wichita-based Kansas Food Bank.
The Food Bank received a $100,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation as part of the Associate Choice Program, an online campaign where Walmart associates vote for a nonprofit agency in their home state to get funding.

The grant will help the Food Bank's Food 4 Kids Program. It provides more than 5,200 food packets to children in more than 300 public schools across Kansas. The program is for students who have little or nothing to eat over the weekend.
Also, the Walmart Foundation Kansas State Giving Program announced a $100,000 grant to the Food Bank's Emergency Food Assistance Program.
The grant will be used to help more than 300 hunger-relief groups in the area. It also will provide funding for the Senior Box program, which provides food for at-risk seniors having financial difficulty.
