SchoolPantryCAHEC Foundation Sponsors School Food Pantries
Many of the residents in our footprint rely on food assistance programs throughout the year to help feed their families. While the CAHEC Foundation's Nutrition Assistance Initiative originally focused on implementing Summer Feeding Programs on CAHEC-sponsored properties, we believed there was more we could do to feed families during the school year. 

In collaboration with various organizations in our footprint, the CAHEC Foundation now supports school food pantries which provide meat, produce, and non-perishable items to low-income students during the school year. Students are able to select items from the pantry for their nightly meals, and also take items home on the weekend to feed their family. Ensuring students have consistent and healthy meals throughout the school year is proven to be beneficial to their mental and physical well-being.

The Second Harvest Food Bank in Winston-Salem, NC, is one organization the CAHEC Foundation collaborates with to support school pantries in the western part of the state. Our donation of $11,000 is expected to produce over 27,000 meals for more than 3,000 individuals during the 2017-2018 school year. "The CAHEC Foundation's very generous support is truly a blessing to our food bank and those we serve," Clyde Fitzgerald, Jr., CEO of the Second Harvest Food Bank said. "We are deeply grateful for all the CAHEC Foundation does to help us end hunger in our community."

The CAHEC Foundation is proud to be part of this wellness initiative, and we look forward to following the success of each of the school food pantries we support.

It may be cold outside, but we are getting excited about our 17th Annual Partners Conference this summer! Remember to mark your calendars and join us June 5-6 at the Grandover Resort & Conference Center in Greensboro, NC.

For attendees wanting overnight accommodations, a block of guest rooms will be available at the special conference rate of $189 (plus tax) per night. New this year, all attendees must register for the conference prior to securing a hotel room. Registration and room reservation links will both go live on the same date. Stay tuned for more information on this in early March!
