Hendersonville, N.C. (WSPA) – The Henderson County Education Foundation and the Henderson County Public Schools are partnering for the sixth year to raise money to feed kids outside of school.
The local restaurant community has supported the annual Food for Thought Campaign in its various iterations.
The 2023 Food for Thought event is asking the public to make a $5 or more donation at one of the participating restaurants.
Donators will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card to the restaurant where they made their donation.
Using the provided envelope at each restaurant, simply make a donation to the Henderson County Education Foundation.
All 26 participating restaurants have donated a $50 gift card to be used for the drawings.
Executive Director of the Henderson County Education Foundation Peggy Marshall said the demand for free and reduced lunch has increased.
They are noticing families are having to make tough decisions on how to afford meals and bills so this fundraiser is to help those people.
