The Million Meals Challenge is back!
Four in-state collegiate rivals have teamed up once again this 2016-17 athletic season to help curb the North Carolina hunger epidemic. In collaboration with Harris Teeter and NC Food Banks, the Million Meals Challenge focuses on generating yearlong support from Duke, NC State, UNC and Wake Forest students, fans, alumni and campus communities.
This marks the second year for the Million Meals Challenge. In year one, the monetary and food donations collected by Harris Teeter, the four universities and the North Carolina Association of Feeding America Food Banks provided over 647,000 meals to North Carolinians! Together we are committed to striking out hunger within the state of North Carolina, where approximately 160,000 different people receive emergency food assistance in any given week.
From now until March 10, 2017 you can help feed those in need by joining Harris Teeter and the Big 4 in the Big 4 Million Meals Challenge!
There are three easy ways to donate: 1. Simply visit http://ncfoodbanks.org/million-meals-challenge to make a donation 2. Text the word FEEDNC to 20222 and make a one-time $5 donation (*Message & Data rates may apply), OR 3. Stop by your local Harris Teeter to pick up you canned food donations
