We would like to thank the staff at the local Nags Head branch of SECU. This past winter, SECU employees held a fundraiser over an 8 week period where they would make soups and desserts to share for their lunches and gave a donation when they served themselves. We are so grateful to these members of our local community that graciously considered Food for Thought for their fundraiser.
Packing Dates for 2023
Many thanks to St. Andrew’s By the Sea and their outreach committee. Their recent Empty Bowls Event helped to raise money for 4 local charities supporting food insecurity issues in Dare & Currituck Counties. The four charities were FFT, Beach Food Pantry, Lower Currituck Food Pantry & Room In The Inn; each received a check from St. Andrew’s for $1,250.
Thank you to Kellogg Supply Company for their recent donation to Food for Thought. Just in time for the holidays, the local hardware and lumber supply company, Kellogg Supply, recently held four events throughout the fall months which included a Charcuterie Class at The Cottage Shop in Nags Head, a Seashell Terrarium Class at the The Cottage Shop/Kellogg Supply in Duck, a Painting Class at Kellogg Supply in KDH, and a Painting Class at Kellogg Supply in Edenton. All ticket proceeds were donated and matched by Kellogg Supply Company for a total donation of $1,400! We are so thankful for this generous donation and wonderful community involvement.
KITTY HAWK – Food for Thought
Matching the county’s expanded free breakfast and lunch program, Food for Thought Outer Banks has expanded its own program to include all pre-K through 8th grade students for free, nutritional weekend meal deliveries.
Shelf-stable meals are now being sent home every Friday to participants until the end of the school year. Each bag will contain only healthy meals and snacks: 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, snacks and milk.
Families who wish to receive a bag need to contact their school’s guidance counselor for a form. There are no income restrictions; everyone who completes the application will be accepted. Participation is entirely anonymous, and no financial or identifying information is shared with Food for Thought volunteers. Do not miss out on this opportunity to receive healthy food every week for your child.
Food for Thought is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that provides healthy non-perishable breakfasts and lunches for students in Dare County. Now in its 13th year, the Outer Banks Food for Thought serves all schools from Cape Hatteras to Kitty Hawk.
Many thanks to Bronwyn Thornton, Encore Decor & all contributing vendors & shoppers for this generous donation to Food For Thought from the proceeds of their Parking Lot Yard Sale in November. We are so grateful for this contribution.
Start your holiday shopping and help support Food for Thought. This wonderful event is sponsored by Encore Decor.
Many thanks to the Duck Woods Water Aerobics Group who recently raised $650 for Food For Thought. We are so grateful to small groups like these who can help us make a huge difference for children in Dare County.
