K&W Donates $10,000 to the Second Harvest Food Bank
In a meeting on Monday, February 11th, with Clyde Fitzgerald, Executive Director of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC, K&W Cafeterias donated $10,000 in the fight against hunger.
The Second Harvest Food Bank serves an 18-county area with nearly 300,000 persons who are at risk of hunger. One third of them are children. Food is a basic need – the fuel we need to survive and thrive. Hungry children can’t learn and hungry adults can’t work and live productively. Children are especially vulnerable to issues of hunger and poverty. A child who is unequipped to learn because of hunger and poverty is more likely to be poor as an adult. As such, the existence of childhood hunger in the United States threatens future American Prosperity.
The owners of K&W Cafeterias believe strongly in supporting the community where they do business. They are pleased to join the Second Harvest Food Bank in their efforts.
