NOBLES GRILLE TO DELIVER 400 THANKSGIVING MEALS ON NOVEMBER 25
Winston-Salem, NC ….. More than 17% of Forsyth County residents, or over 60,000 individuals, are food-insecure. Hunger adversely affects productivity, health and the academic performance of children.
Thanks to Nobles Grille of Winston-Salem, 400 local men, women and children will enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving meal for free. The meals will be distributed to six local non-profit agencies, all of which are United Way-supported programs, on Wednesday, November 25:
• Experiment in Self-Reliance, 1439 East Fifth Street (40 meals)
• Family Services, 1868 Kentucky Avenue (40 meals)
• The Fellowship Home, 661 North Spring Street (20 meals)
• Forsyth Rapid Rehousing Collaborative, 301 North Main Street, Suite 1700 (140 meals)
• The Salvation Army – Center of Hope, 1255 North Trade Street (140 meals)
• YWCA Hawley House, 941 West Street (20 meals)
United Way of Forsyth County is grateful for partners like Nobles Grille that help us meet the needs of those in crisis, especially during the holiday season.
We invite local media to cover one of these locations, and recommend The Salvation Army given the large number of meals and the fact that they will be served on site. At some other locations, the meals will be boxed and distributed for consumption off-site. Agency contact information for all locations is attached.
