Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina is on call to respond to national disasters by collecting food and funds for relief efforts in affected areas. As a member of Feeding America, the national network of food banks, Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina can accept community donations to get the most urgently needed items to those in greatest need in any section of the country.
The most critical needs with a natural disaster are usually bottled water, canned goods and money to assist with transportation costs. During Hurricane Katrina, Second Harvest Food Bank sent a dozen truckloads of product into Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida.
For information on how you can assist during a national disaster, please contact Kay Carter at 704-375-9639, ext. 16 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
