Did you know that one in four children is at risk of hunger in North Carolina?
Thanks to amazing programs such as the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's BackPack Buddies, that hunger is kept at bay for some. The program provides 2,100 children, who qualify for free school breakfasts and lunches, with weekend meals during the school year.
Join us this year for the annual BackPack Buddies Mediathon on Wednesday, July 19, to help raise food and money for the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle.
There will be a phone bank at WRAL throughout the day on Wednesday, July 19, to raise money. WRAL also will be collecting food at Triangle Town Center and Food Lion locations in Wake, Durham, Orange, Chatham, Johnston, Nash and Edgecombe counties. 101.5 WRAL-FM will be at the sponsor locations with live remotes throughout the day.
