NCCC is partnering with Food Lion, LLC grocery stores for the third annual NC Collegiate Hunger Challenge. Eleven campuses are competing for up to $22,000 to put toward fighting hunger on and around campus. Through the competition, which runs through Dec. 10, 2021, participating campuses earn points based on several activities all centered around collecting and donating food for neighbors in need or around hunger awareness efforts. Schools also earn points by sharing their efforts on social media (Instagram and Twitter). You can follow #foodlionfeeds plus the school hashtags listed below to see the schools in action.
As part of the challenge, each school nominates an MVP Student Hunger Ambassador who is responsible for leading the effort on each campus, with guidance from a faculty/staff mentor.
