If you visited the United Way office in July, you may have seen boxes overflowing with food items for our annual MeaningFULL Meals collection.
Five years ago, United Way and The Volunteer Center started MeaningFULL Meals, a nutrition project that seeks food donations to help feed school children in need while school is out for summer.
More than 65% of Guilford County School’s students qualify for free or reduced lunch. In the summer months, many of these children do not have the same access to a nutritious meal and go hungry.
For the third year in a row, BackPack Beginnings joined the partnership by managing the food pantry, preparing bags of food for pick up and being a drop off location for food donations.
Big thanks to ALL who collected items to help free students this summer!
