Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina hosted the annual Partner Appreciation Luncheon at Myers Park United Methodist Church on Thursday, January 22nd. This annual event with a “Super Heroes” theme recognizes Second Harvest food donors, financial donors, volunteers and organizations who have been a super hero in helping to end hunger in the 19-county area in North and South Carolina that Second Harvest services.
For the first time in 8 years, Second Harvest presented Lifetime Achievement awards. Two organizations were recognized for their extraordinary philanthropic efforts over the years to help feed hungry children, seniors and working poor families in the Metrolina region. The first award winner was the Springs Close Foundation. The Springs Close Foundation sponsors a Second Harvest senior box program, backpack program and mobile pantries and has donated over $600,000 to the Food Bank to help in the battle against hunger.
