One Less Hungry Child Gala
Join us Saturday September 10th 2016 at the Terraces on Sir Tyler from 6-10pm. The evening will feature a four course meal from Milners, open beer and wine bar & signature cocktail, live music by the Masonboro Sound, and awesome auctions. All proceeds will benefit the NourishNC Backpack Program.
The mission of NourishNC is to provide healthy food to hungry children, empowering them to succeed in the classroom and in their community. Thank you to our sponsors who make this mission possible.
Why is your support so important?
One in four children in New Hanover County goes hungry daily. That means 25% of the children in New Hanover County experience food insecurity. When a child suffers from lack of nutrition, it creates a ripple effect in the child’s life, classroom, neighborhood, and community. Children who lack proper nutrition have documented decreases in mental and physical development. Hunger can result in irritability, poor performance in school, and an inability to normalize within peer groups, all of which can follow children into adulthood and affect their quality of life and further perpetuates the cycle of poverty. We cannot let chronic childhood hunger happen on our watch.
