NCAJ State-wide Food Drive for the Hungry is a Success: Almost 12,000 Pounds of Food Donated

Share Article

In North Carolina, 1 in 4 children are food insecure, according to the Food Hardship in America 2012 report from the Food Research and Action Center. Food banks play a vital role in serving the community and members of the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) legal association are honored to support the annual NCAJ New Lawyers Division’s Food Bank Drive each November.

This year, NCAJ members donated 11,651 pounds of food and $8,279 to support 11 food banks across the state.

The receiving food banks included the Food Bank of Eastern & Central North Carolina; Manna Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina in Asheville; Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and Northwest North Carolina; Community Soup Kitchen in Goldsboro; Hope Mission in Morehead City; Martha’s Mission in Morehead City; Hope Station in Wilson; Operation Inasmuch in Fayetteville; Christian United Outreach Center in Sanford; and Food Pantry at Millbrook United Methodist Church in Raleigh.
