In addition to providing food to over 800 non-profit partner agencies, SHMETROLINA directly serves our hungry neighbors. 14.9% of our service area population, over 553,000 people, live in poverty including over 182,000 children and over 48,000 seniors.

The 9 Food Drive, benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, comes at an especially critical time as area emergency pantries served by Second Harvest respond to community needs during the COVID-19 crisis.

The greatest need currently is for funds to purchase healthy shelf stable items for food boxes. These boxes will help feed families whose children are missing school meals, seniors being asked to stay safely in their homes, those in need of food who are quarantined, and employees in our community being impacted by decreases in work hours.

We hope you'll join our 9 Family Focus partners, Arby's, Ashley HomeStore, Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Gastroenterology & Hepatology and E.R. Services in our combined effort to fight hunger.

If you can, please donate online today. 

Thank you for supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and your neighbors in need.
