Legal Feeding Frenzy has been extended through April 4.
The annual fundraiser is held every year starting March to collect food for the hungry and cash donations. Ward and Smith is proud to participate every year.
Nearly two million North Carolina are considered "food insecure." It's one of the highest rates in the country. Additionally, the Tar Heel state also has one of the highest rates of children under age five experiencing a lack of food. Food banks around the state are struggling to keep up with demand, and due to the ongoing effects of Hurricanes Florence and Michael, they need help more than ever.
You can help in two ways. Donation boxes have been placed at each office location. We are collecting nonperishable food such as canned fruits, veggies, meat, beans, and soups, as well as pasta, rice, and things like peanut butter, through April 4.
Online donations will also be accepted through the following links:
Donations from the Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, and Wilmington offices will benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina while donations from the Asheville office will go to MANNA.
