One million local meals!
Servants With a Heart has surpassed a longstanding goal of distributing one million meals within the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area. We are so grateful for the more than 100,000 volunteers who have contributed to this wonderful milestone, as well as for the local organizations that receive and distribute our food.
We are happy to work with a number of local groups, including Common Cupboard. They have been a monthly recipient of our meals for many years, receiving 20-30 boxes per month. “We try to provide a wide range of food through our three Common Cupboard food pantries. The food this amazing grassroots organization provides has helped us immeasurable to further our service to hungry families in our community,” says Keith Adams, Executive Director Common Heart in Indian Trail, NC.
For most of the years since we started packing food in 2011, we have strived to keep ten percent of our food in our local area. Passing the one million local meal mark is a very exciting event for all of us!
