2 Weeks Left to Make a Difference!

September is
Hunger Action Month

One in six Americans will struggle with hunger today - over 500,000 folks are right here in central and eastern North Carolina. As unemployment and poverty numbers rise, more folks are finding themselves making difficult choices: paying for food or paying for rent, paying for groceries or paying for medicine. More of our neighbors are going hungry.

But you can help make a difference during the last two weeks of Hunger Action Month. Join us for our "30 Ways in 30 Days" campaign to help feed more of our hungry neighbors than ever before!
