Southern Season awards grants to fight hunger

Southern Season’s charitable arm, Share the Food Foundation, has awarded more than $73,000 worth of grants to Triangle-area nonprofits that fight hunger and related health issues.

The nonprofits include South Eastern Efforts Developing Sustainable Spaces, Inc. (SEEDS) in Durham, People Offering Relief for Chapel Hill Carrboro Homes (PORCH) of Chapel Hill, Nourishing Noggins in Cary, TABLE in Carrboro, Meals on Wheels of Durham, Inc., Raleigh Rescue Mission, Inter-Faith Council for Social Service of Raleigh and East Durham’s Children’s Initiative.

The foundation raised funds through special sales, events and in-store donations throughout the year. The Chapel Hill company covers the administrative costs of running the foundation so that all proceeds raised can go directly to these nonprofits and support their missions. For more information:
