The Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity Staff Donates Time to Second Harvest Food Bank
Dr. Ronny Bell, Dr. Alain Bertoni, Sarah Langdon and Winona Gilbert recently helped out at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Winston Salem, NC by boxing food for the needy. The Center plans to donate time on a monthly basis to lend a hand.
With support from many generous food and financial donors and the helping hands of some 2,000 volunteers, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina plays a critical role in hunger-relief efforts for the region, helping to provide access to food to those who cannot afford it so that they can survive and even thrive. Through their primary food distribution program, they solicit, transport, inspect , sort, warehouse and distribute donated food to nearly 400 non-profit partner agencies that serve people at risk of hunger and others in need . They are a proud member of Feeding America (formerly named America's Second Harvest), a collaborative and coordinated network of more than 200 food banks united nationally and operating locally, serving every community in the nation to get food to those who need it. Collectively, we distribute more than 2 billion pounds of food each year to 50,000 non-profit organizations serving those in need across the nation.
