Polk County 4-H commits to Hungry to Help

Published 3:34 pm Monday, September 20, 2010

4-Hers attending State 4-H Congress in Raleigh committed to an ambitious goal of collecting one million pounds of food for North Carolinas food banks as part of a campaign called Hungry to Help.

Conducted in partnership with the Food Banks of North Carolina, the campaign is designed to promote awareness of hunger in North Carolina and to help stop it. To get started, 350 4-Hers gathered at Dorton Arena at the State Fairgrounds and repackaged 37,900 pounds of pasta from massive containers into smaller, family-sized portions.

Polk County 4-H will be holding a food drive at the fall BBQ Supper to help with this statewide effort.
