Second Harvest Food Bank and CCF partner to bring 1 million pounds of food for the hungry in Cumberland County.

Food manufacturers across the country donate their products, but food banks must cover the expense of transportation. It costs an average of $600 for Second Harvest Food Bank to bring a tractor-trailer load of food to Fayetteville. Costs include fuel, truck rental, insurance and a driver, and each tractor-trailer can hold about 33,000 pounds. The goal of the 1 Million Pound campaign is to raise money to bring an additional 31 tractor-trailers of food. The food is then distributed through the 260 food pantries supplied by Second Harvest Food Bank. In total, they provide an estimated 800,000 meals.
