TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Three Tallahassee non-profits now have more than $125,000 in awards to better serve our area.

America's Second Harvest of the Big Bend, the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Bend, and the School of Arts and Sciences each received a chunk of more than $940,000 in grants awarded to non-profits statewide by the Walmart Foundation.

Part of the money will be used to build a community garden at the School of Arts and Sciences to assist with hunger relief right here at home.

Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have committed to provide four billion meals between 2015 and 2020 to people in need.

Walmart aims to reach this goal through grants to charitable organizations and hunger-relief programs, as well as through food donations from Walmart stores, Sam's Clubs and distribution centers.
