Aperio Clinical Outcomes has made a donation to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC, in recognition of #GivingTuesdayNow. #GivingTuesdayNow, held on May 5, 2020, is a day of global giving and unity in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. By participating in a virtual food drive coordinated by the Food Bank, Aperio staff raised a total of $875 to help feed families in need.
The Food Bank has seen an enormous increase in demand for food since the COVID-19 crisis began, with spending on food growing from $55,000 to over $2 million per month. In addition, the Food Bank has distributed thousands of family-sized boxes, containing 20 meals per box, to go to the Food Bank’s disaster relief partner agencies – food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters – as well as some area school districts, and several Meals on Wheels chapters. The Food Bank is also supporting numerous Grab & Go Meals for Kids locations to help support families who traditionally rely on school lunch programs throughout the year.
