Apple Corps Ambassador Misty Coolidge’s next volunteer stop was the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina in early December of 2021.
Some fun facts about the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina:
- Distributes over one million pounds of food every week
- Serving nearly 600,000 food insecure people in 34 counties
- 38% of the food they handle is fresh produce
- 60% of the sweet potatoes in the USA come from North Carolina
If they were to stop taking in food today, their food bank would be empty in 10 days! That’s how fast they distribute pallets of food into their communities.
