In Person Opportunities!  

One theme from the renewal surveys was that Ambassadors want chances to engage and meet offline, too.  So without further ado: 

1. *NEW* Transfer Co. Food Hall 

Still under construction and with limited opening, Ambassadors have the opportunity to experience Raleigh's new Transfer Co. Food Hall in its current form on Tuesday, March 19 at 6p.m.

The evening will begin with an introduction into the space, followed by a discussion of the new tax law and charitable giving strategies. Dinner is provided by Locals Oyster Bar and Che Empanadas and the evening will be capped off with a guided beer tasting! Please RSVP by March 12th to Sarah.Brandl@ampf.com and lhumbert@foodbankcenc.org

March is National Nutrition Month 

To celebrate National Nutrition Month, our Nutrition Ed. Manager, Sara Clement, came up with 31 fun facts and ideas for eating well. @FoodBankCENC will be tweeting out one per day all March long....and you can join in the fun as well! The SMA Dropbox has a folder with a calendar graphic, an excel sheet with suggested posts, and corresponding photos. Check it out!

...And of course, National Nutrition Month is a great time to revisit FBCENC's feature on Feeding America's Hunger + Health blog! Our Vice President, Community Health & Engagement, Gideon Adams, penned a piece on our recent collaboration with Food Lion and REX Healthcare to open a food pantry on site at the hospital for patients

March Match is back!

March 1-31, friends of the Food Bank are matching every donation up to $107,000! That means gifts will go twice as far helping children have access to the nutritious food they need to grow big and strong.

(Shhh it's a secret: We are also planning a Triple Match Day towards the end of March! I will reach out with more information as we get closer.)

We'd love your help spreading the word about our March Match! Graphic in the SMA Dropbox
