Community Outreach Food Drive

Stop Summer Hunger, our food drive for kids in need, is underway! At our At May 8th & June 12th meetings, we’ll be collecting food to donate to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC’s Stop Summer Hunger program which helps children in need during the summer months.  For many of these kids, their only solid meal of the day during the school year is had during their school lunch.  Our donations will supplement the organizations that feed these kids during their time away from school. We will have collection boxes for those that can bring non-perishable food items to our May & June luncheons.  We’ll focus on kid-friendly items which are listed here.

Our goal is to fill 20 collection boxes.  We have filled 1 so far – 19 to go!!

Now it’s time to shift our food drive into a higher gear by considering taking a collection box back to your respective offices and have your own company-wide food drive for the cause.  (We’ll have collection boxes for you at the May meeting.) At the June meeting, we will have representatives from the food bank to collect our hefty donated haul.  Let’s fill up the truck!  For those that prefer a monetary donation, you can make one here.

Let’s make a substantial dent in helping the Food Bank reach their goal of providing 3 million meals for children during this Summer of 2013!
