5 Ways to Fight Hunger This Holiday Season

Over 500,000 people in our region live in poverty and are at risk of hunger. Make a difference in these lives by supporting the Ballantyne Virtual Food Drive benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Here are five easy ways to get involved.

1. Donate online throughout November.

Donate online to make a greater impact. Monetary donations allow Second Harvest to provide healthier options like fresh meats and produce, and just $1 provides seven pounds of food to men, women and children in local shelters.

2. Enjoy a seasonal bowl from Verde.

Verde‘s Ballantyne location is donating $1 to the food drive for every order of its Greensgiving bowl or wrap made during November.

3. Order lunch through Foodsby the week of November 18.

Have lunch delivered directly to your office by ordering through Foodsby November 18-22, and $1 of each order will be donated back to the cause.

4. Donate a frozen turkey.

David Weekley Homes‘ annual turkey drive is back! Drop off a frozen turkey or cash donation at the Gibson Building on November 6, noon – 1:30 p.m., and enjoy festive activities including a chili cook-off competition among David Weekley team members.

5. Volunteer to pack 30,000 meals for local families and children (SOLD OUT).

Help assemble 30,000 meals for local families and children in need by volunteering with Togetherhood at the Feed the Hunger Pack-a-thon on November 15, 3-5 p.m., at the Morrison Family YMCA. This project is a two-hour commitment and is intended for ages 8 years and up. All meals will be distributed locally through Feed the Hunger.
