HensonFuerst Participating in Statewide Food Drive

On average, 1 of every 7 people in North Carolina live at or below the federal poverty level, and most  receive emergency food each year from a food bank or soup kitchen. In some counties, more than 1 of every 4 children are impoverished. It is possible for a head-of-household to work full-time and still not bring home enough money to feed his or her children. That means that on some nights, after a long day of work and school, there is no dinner, and everyone goes to bed hungry.

That’s why HensonFuerst Attorneys is a Food Drive Host, working with the North Carolina Advocates for Justice (NCAJ) on a state-wide food collection drive, the Dare to Care: Feed Those In Need NCAJ Fall Food Drive. A similar food drive held this past spring allowed the NCAJ to donate more than 1,000 pounds of food to food banks across the state. NCAJ is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina, Manna Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina, and Food Bank of Eastern & Central North Carolina.
