As part of our continued efforts to give back to our local communities, this Thanksgiving season, the WEP Clinical team in the US organized a food collection to donate to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. The team collected 63 lbs of food which equates to 53 meals for people in the service area who are food insecure!
These meals will be delivered through many avenues, including the Food Bank’s partnership with over 800 support agencies, the nationally recognized Kids Cafes, and the Weekend Power Pack program, which ensures children are fed on the weekends.
We are proud to be able to support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina with its mission to provide for the nearly 600,000 people who face hunger across its 34-county service area.
The Food Bank is an affiliate member of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity. The non-profit works every day to provide food to people in need while building solutions to end hunger in local communities.
