Philanthropy & Culture: PF Volunteers with Durham Food Bank
PF Volunteers with the Durham Food Bank in Durham, North Carolina
As a patient-focused delivery team, we are committed to connecting our team members to patients and their families. Connecting our team to the patients has fostered a culture within our organization that is focused on providing solutions, meeting deadlines, and getting results.
The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina (the Food Bank) is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for our friends and neighbors facing hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina for over 40 years. In the Durham, North Carolina area alone, there are currently 78,420 people facing hunger (and growing). The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina supports those facing hunger by providing access to nutritious food and creating an environment where all North Carolinans can thrive. Since last year, volunteers have served over 32,000 hours at the Durham branch of the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, distributing over 14 million meals and 7 million pounds of produce.
For the second year in a row, the Project Farma team was excited to dedicate a day volunteering with The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina’s Durham branch where we packaged over 1,500 pounds of produce for those living with food insecurity in the Durham area.
