CHERRY HILL, N.J., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  The TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank, America's Most Convenient Bank ®, recently  donated a total of $900,000 in grants to food pantries throughout the bank's footprint from Maine to Florida.

"Thousands of people will be impacted by the food stamp cuts and with the holidays approaching the assistance from food banks will be vital," said Elizabeth K.
