Happy Summer! This season we are focusing on being grateful for all we have accomplished together as a Feeding Charlotte family.
Each one of you is a true hero in helping to alleviate hunger and food waste in our community. Every pound of food donated, meal delivered, introduction made, event attended, and dollar donated brings us closer to our goal of making Charlotte a more sustainable and equitable city.
I hope this summer brings you some much needed rest, relaxation, sun to warm you, and good food to nourish you.
Coffee & Conversation Wrap Up
May’s Coffee and Conversation event was such a delight! More than 75 supporters of Feeding Charlotte gathered in the dining room at Johnson & Wales University. Between times for conversation, attendees heard from Janette Kinard, Executive Director of Champion House of Care, one of our recipient organizations. Janette shared about the impact that rescued, donated food is making in the community she serves. Quoting one of her families, she said, “Ms. Janette brings the good stuff.”
Because we believe so much that “the good stuff” belongs in people’s bellies, not the landfill, we commit to our mission … feeding hungry neighbors while reducing food waste.
To everyone who joined us, thank you!
Did you know that the Cotswold Farmers Market is one example of how we can eat local and build community at the same time?
Located behind the medical building at 309 S. Sharon Amity Rd., this market features local produce, meats, eggs, flowers, and more. They also believe strongly in educating the community about the good things happening in our city. Recently, Feeding Charlotte was the beneficiary of the tip jar for the band The Smashing Briefcases and the market shared about our work.
Thank you, Cotswold Farmers Market! Be sure to visit them on Saturdays from 8-12, now through October.
Mark Your Calendars for Hunger Awareness Month
September is Hunger Awareness Month and we will be hosting our second annual peer-to-peer campaign to help raise funds for our innovative mission.
Our “Food is Love” campaign allows you to be a part of what we do, in your very own way and style. Last year, participants raised over $8,000, which helped us finish the year strong, meeting the needs of our partner organizations when it comes to food rescue.
This year we are wrapping it up with a super fun event at Warehouse 242, featuring food and drinks, live music, and amazing artwork from local artists who care about food rescue and the planet.
