As the summer comes to an end and we start to enjoy the cooler weather, the Live Love Serve Foundation would like to put a spotlight on Second Harvest Foodbank of Metrolina – a community organization committed to supplying food and grocery items to charitable agencies that assist people in need.
This September, Second Harvest Foodbank has created a 30 day awareness campaign called Hunger Action Month, where people all over the United States stand together to end hunger. This month is a time where individuals and partner organizations should spread the word and take action in the hunger crisis that exists in our nation today.
From its regional distribution center and secondary branches, Second Harvest Foodbank serves a total of 24 counties, with 14 being in North Carolina and 10 counties located in South Carolina. Last year, the Second Harvest Food Bank distributed more than 60 million pounds of food and household items throughout its 24 county service region, with 12.8 million of those pounds being distributed to agencies in Mecklenburg County alone.
How the Live Love Serve Foundation Partners with Second Harvest Foodbank
CBI Workplace Solutions and the Live Love Serve Foundation have been longstanding supporters of Second Harvest Foodbank of Metrolina. Each year in December, we host an end-of-year, holiday celebration for our Associates in which we celebrate our successes as a business and a community. At this celebration, we always come together to participate in a service activity that will benefit neighbors in need and many times throughout the years the service activity we have chosen is to host a food drive benefitting Second Harvest Foodbank of Metrolina.
Additionally, throughout each year, various CBI locations and individual Associates have given their time to sort and package food at the Second Harvest Foodbank’s regional distribution center located in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Second Harvest Foodbank is very near and dear to our hearts and the Live Love Serve Foundation will continue lending our support however we can throughout this fall.
There are many ways you can contribute to the Second Harvest Foodbank of Metrolina. Whether you host a food drive, give your time in the regional distribution center or make a donation, all efforts are much appreciated and needed.
