In August, 2015, the SECU Foundation provided a $1.2 million grant to the NC Association of Feeding America Food Banks that provided North Carolinians in need with 6 million additional meals over 3 years. The grant added 2 million meals per year to clients served by North Carolina food banks – that’s one extra meal per year funded by each of the Credit Union’s 2 million members. The non-profit NC Association serves as a strategic alliance for the six food banks and one food recovery organization in the state, and its affiliated network of 2,500 food pantries, shelters and community groups will help ensure the additional meals reach neighbors in all 100 North Carolina counties.
In 2016, SECU Foundation provided NC Food Banks with an additional $500,000 for Hurricane Matthew relief to support fellow North Carolinians in counties directly impacted by the storm.
