Participation isn’t confined to vacationers either. Locals are asked to throw a few extra items in their grocery cart for donation to the pantry as well. It would be wonderful to have participation by our local merchants and citizens.
The first delivery of food on our kickoff day this past Saturday, was generously donated by Jeff and Sherry Price of The Beach Shop Grille, who donated almost 300 lbs of food to the cause.
Thank you Jeff and Sherry! We hope other restaurants in the area will emulate your efforts!
We would like to recognize our first individual food donor, Ann McCoullough of Ontario Canadia. Ann was not leaving the island, but wanted to show her support by dropping off items for the pantry. Another donor saw F3’s signs on the way to the grocery store and picked up extra items to donate to the cause as well.
350 lbs of food was collected our 1st week!
If vacationing on Topsail Island put F3 on your calendar and drop off food any Saturday until Labor Day weekend!
We are grateful for the vision of Bill Spiers and his tireless efforts to start “A Second Helping” on Holden Beach. Click here for details of drop offs at Holden Beach. Thanks to his vision there are now three beaches participating in this program. There is a “A Second Helping” at Emerald Isle Beach as well. Click here for details for drop offs at Emerald Isle.We hope more beaches will adopt this effort to banish waste and feed the hungry.
Cash donations gratefully accepted. For each dollar received, we can buy approximately 5 and 8 lbs. of food.
100% of these donations are used to buy more food.
