ImageMonday, Verigent will begin collecting non-perishable foods for The Second Harvest Food Bank’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in Charlotte, NC.  We are excited to participate this year and hoping we can contribute more than expected to feed hungry families!

According to their website, 15.7% of the Metrolina’s service area lives in poverty, which includes 185,000 children and seniors.

Some more facts from their website:

  • They serve 14 counties in North Carolina
  • Provide food for almost 650 partner agencies
  • Between 2009-2010 they distributed over 33 million pounds of food & other grocery items
  • 76% of the food distributed is donated

We are excited to be working with the Second Harvest Food Bank in the Metrolina area and look forward to participating in more events to help feed North Carolina!  For more information about donating food or money, please contact Brittany Keenan at bkeenan@verigent.com or via phone at 704-658-3271.
