The Nexstar Charitable Foundation made a $50,000 donation to Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization, to assist with Feeding America’s promotion of “Hunger Action Month,” this September.

As part of the partnership, during the month of September Nexstar’s television stations and its cable news network, NewsNation, will donate airtime worth approximately $600,000 to broadcast a variety of public service announcements on behalf of Feeding America. In addition, with one or more partner food banks in every Nexstar market, Nexstar employees are being encouraged to volunteer their time and effort to assist Feeding America in fulfilling its mission.

“Raising awareness about the issues of hunger and food insecurity in the United States is vitally important, especially as the pandemic continues to threaten families and communities across the country,” said Perry Sook, Nexstar Media Group, Inc.’s, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Millions of families remain unsure of whether they will have enough to eat on a daily basis and the work done by Feeding America and its local partner food pantries and food banks makes an incredible difference for those in need. We are proud of our partnership with Feeding America and we look forward to using our powerful national and local digital and broadcast platforms during September to raise awareness about these issues and to drive volunteer efforts in the communities we serve.”
