High Point Agencies to receive refrigerator

by Daniel Schere

Piedmont Health Services and the Sickle Cell Agency are partnering with the Northwest Food Bank of North Carolina to receive a commercial refrigerator awarded through the banks competitive grant process. It comes as part of an effort to assist struggling families in the High Point community as well as address urgent needs.

“With this new commercial refrigerator, we will be able to provide even more highly nutritious meats, eggs and fresh produce to families in our community who are struggling to put food on the table – whether because of a health crisis, unemployment, underemployment or other challenging circumstances,” Director of Agency Relations Nikki McCormick said.

The food bank serves more than 300,000 people each year across 18 counties as part of a network of 400 charitable food assistance programs.
