2010: 133,001 meals
(60% Growth in four years!)
2014 Goal is to Raise 225,000 Meals
Our Annual Food Drive goes from June 1 - end of August. (while we collect food year-round, the summer is when Second Harvest needs us the most!)
Each summer hundreds of children across the Triad who normally get free lunch at school have nothing to eat. Because of this, and a seasonal drop in donations in the summer, Second Harvest is stretched very, very thin. For the 11th consecutive year PTAA will conduct our annual food drive for Second Harvest during this challenging time of year and we need your participation!
