Chapel Hill, NC, December 13, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Chapel Hill’s gourmet retailer, Southern Season, continues its neighborhood outreach through its Share the Food Foundation. Share the Food fights hunger and related health issues in communities surrounding Southern Season stores in an effort to make lives in their local neighborhoods better.
Each year, Share the Food gives grants to local organizations. In 2013, eight Chapel Hill area non-profits, Southern Eastern Efforts Developing Sustainable Spaces, Inc. (SEEDS), People Offering Relief for Chapel Hill Carrboro Homes (PORCH), Nourishing Noggins, TABLE, Meals on Wheels of Durham, Inc., Raleigh Rescue Mission, Inter-Faith Council for Social Service and East Durham’s Children’s Initiative, were awarded more than $73,000.
"We are impressed with the work these organizations have been doing in the Triangle and hope these grants will only increase their ability to fight hunger," says Jay White, VP of New Store Development & Community Relations, and a Share the Food Board Member. "We believe that every dollar given to us to fight hunger should do just that. Southern Season funds all of the administration costs of the Foundation so that 100% of all proceeds raised will be used to fight hunger.”
