El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, formerly the West Texas Food Bank and El Paso’s only Food Bank, has a chance to win $1,000,000 through the Wal-Mart Fighting Hunger Together competition.

The contest will run through April 30; Wal-Mart will donate a $1,000,000 prize to the area with the most votes and $50,000 to the 20 runners up.

Visit facebook.com/walmart, and click on the Fighting Hunger Together tab to vote. Users may vote once per day and the city with the most votes wins the million dollar prize.

Wal-Mart selected 200 Food Banks across the country with the highest unemployment rates to compete for the donations. A donation of this size would make a significant difference as El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is a new food bank that took over the service areas of El Paso, Hudspeth, and Culberson Counties from the West Texas Food Bank because these areas were being underserved.
