AUSTIN, TEXAS, March 1, 2021 — The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of Texas (“Molina”), has donated $250,000 to Feeding Texas to support millions of Texans struggling in the aftermath of severe weather and record-breaking cold endured throughout the state.
“The pandemic already pushed more Texans than ever to access food assistance from food banks,” said Celia Cole, CEO at Feeding Texas. “The need is even higher as we strive to help Texas families recover from the impact of the recent winter storms. We are grateful for MolinaCares and Molina Healthcare of Texas’ support in helping Texas food banks keep their communities nourished through this crisis.”
The Feeding Texas network is the largest hunger-relief organization in Texas. Together with 21-member food banks, the organization reaches over four million Texans annually with food and resources. “Our hearts go out to Texans affected by the devastating storm that left millions without adequate food, clean drinking water, heat, or power,” said Anne Rote, president of Molina Healthcare of Texas. “Molina Healthcare of Texas is honored to lend a hand during this trying time.”
