BWC World Food Day

October 15-17, 2021

BWC is hosting a countywide #givehealthy food drive in partnership with grocery stores to collect healthy foods which will be delivered to #foodheroes (distribution sites).

Why? Because in Brunswick County,

  • 14% of the population lives in poverty
  • 28% of children live in poverty
  • 14% of the population is food insecure
  • 7% of the population consumes the daily recommended number of fruits & vegetables

Goal: As part of international #WorldFoodDay, BWC is promoting countywide awareness of and taking action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.
