All Challengers Support Local North Carolina Food Banks and Hunger Relief Programs
Donations support local North Carolina food banks and hunger relief programs to help people who are in dire need of food. Before Covid-19, 1 in 9 Americans struggled with food insecurity. As a result of Covid-19, food insecurity is expected to double worldwide. Our updated goal is to raise a $30,000 to support local programs, including Feeding The Carolinas, The Inter-faith Council for Social Service, Table, and Beautiful Together.
