Share:

As a result of an innovative new initiative to empower North Carolina

Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) with $10,000 as part of the 2019
Food Lion Feeds Collegiate Hunger Challenge.

The two schools were chosen out of 17 participating schools in the
inaugural competition developed by Food Lion and North Carolina Campus
Compact, an organization focused on civic engagement on North Carolina
college campuses.

In total, the 17 schools hosted nearly 140 events around hunger
awareness and collected more than 77,000 pounds of food during the 2018
Fall semester to help nourish hungry neighbors on campuses and in the
towns and cities where the schools are located.

"Imagine how difficult it is to learn when you are hungry," Ham said.
"That is a situation faced by many college students at campuses every
day. That's one of the reasons Food Lion was so excited about this
partnership – tapping into the passion of students to help fellow
students and the communities surrounding their campuses to fight hunger."

Each of the 17 participating schools had a unique approach, and a
different set of ideas on how to deliver the message that hunger is
prevalent on college campuses, and how to address that. While Elizabeth
City State University led a competition kick-off event to start their
food drive and continued it with a Fill-A-Bus food drive at one of the
school's football games, which collected more than 5,000 pounds of food,
North Carolina Central University was particularly successful in helping
to raise awareness of hunger on campus and in and around the community.
