We're partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to help feed our hungry neighbors in their 19-county service area. If you've ever been poor, then you know how awful it is to worry about feeding yourself and your loved ones. Second Harvest provides a regional distribution warehouse and branches that supply food and grocery items to over 700 charitable agencies that assist people in need. These agencies include soup kitchens, emergency food pantries, homeless shelters, senior programs, and low-income daycares. The Food Bank also has a Pet Food Bank - Operation Rescue, which assists area rescues with pet food and supplies. For more information about how you can get involved, visit secondharvestmetrolina.org Second Harvest will have a rep there on the 6th, so let's load em up. You can donate food - canned goods, pasta, peanut butter, and whole grain cereals are what they ask for. Other necessities like personal hygiene items, paper products, home cleaning supplies, and diapers are also great. If you have a few bucks, you can click the "Learn More" button on the Dead Sea $crilla page to donate directly to Second Harvest. $1 equals 7 POUNDS OF FOOD. For the price of a burrito and a drink you can donate more than 70 pounds of food, which means about 40 meals for hungry folks in our area. Shadow will be coming through, we'll have a reading by our friend CB, and performances by StereoLoud, El Malpais, and Nige Hood & the Folk Rap Band. Share this post, look for our event, and come out on December 6 to help and celebrate the community you're a part of. This is just the kickoff party - there will be a donation barrel at Snug through January 1 so you can bring stuff whenever you'd like. Tis the season y'all. Your Presents Is Required #giftrap
