“NourishNC is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to “Provide healthy food to hungry children, empowering them to succeed in the classroom and in their community.” Our goal is to enhance children’s health and well-being by preventing the devastating consequences of child hunger. We are committed to providing our community’s most vulnerable children with nutritious food.”
For our August charity drive we have partnered up with a wonderful charity close to home, Nourish NC. They provide healthy meals for children in need in the New Hanover County (Wilmington) area and across the state of North Carolina.
In New Hanover county “1 in 5 children go hungry or are food insecure” and, “nearly half of all kids qualify for free & reduced lunch.” With all of the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and returning to schools, organizations like NourishNC are incredibly important for many hungry children depending on school meals for sufficient nutrition.
We pledge to donate 10% of online store sales during the month of August to NourishNC, so they can pack more backpacks full of fresh, healthy food!
A donation of $10 will feed a child over the weekend. That $10 would provide a child in NHC with 8 meals, 7 snacks, plus fruit and a drink.
$75 nourishes a child with produce for a year, $500 nourishes a child in general for an entire year.
For more information about what NourishNC does check out their website here. They have a new video on the main page showing their updated process with COVID precautions in place. There’s also a donation page here!
Thank you to all of our customers for supporting our business and subsequently giving the gift of healthy food to our local youth! We appreciate you.
