We are excited to share with you that Run 5 Feed 5 and SerCo are teaming up again to bring you a 5K charity hosted by Creekside Park. Run 5 Feed 5 is a 501c3 organization that hosts events throughout the year to fund programs that feed hungry children as well as stock a pantry for local schools. SerCo Club is also a 501c3 organization that host events throughout the year as well to help families, kids and elders at Christmas since 1994. “Service to the Community" Run 5 Feed 5 and SerCo will co-host the third annual Be the Light 5K with the proceeds feeding hungry children and providing gifts for children and families in need this Christmas. The event will be held on Saturday, December 2nd beginning at 4:30pm. This will be a HUGE family event for the holidays at Creekside Park! The event will start off with a 5K run/walk through the park and end the 5K with the annual Creekside Tree Lighting as well as many activities for families! Be The Light 5K (runsignup.com)
We will deliver a bi-weekly food box to over 500 children during the Christmas break. Below is a link to sign up for our upcoming delivery, if you have any questions please reach out!
Run 5 Feed 5 is a 501c3 organization that hosts events throughout the year including a 5K walk/run in the Spring and partnering with SerCo in December with the Be The Light 5K to fund programs that feed hungry children. Our mission started in 2014 with the hope of raising money and awareness for the dire childhood hunger problem in our communities. In addition, we currently offer grants for schools to use to buy lunch or snacks for children who would otherwise go without. Right now, in North Carolina, one out of every four children are going hungry, and our goal is to fight that statistic!
Our efforts have expanded greatly over this past year. We continue to support the Backpack Pals program, who sends bags of food home every Friday for local food insecure children.
In addition, Run 5 Feed 5 provides food delivery during the summer and extended breaks, as well as issuing school lunch grants for children who would otherwise go without. This year, we started offering a food pantry for local schools to come and pick up needed items outside of delivery weeks. Most recently, we have added a "pack the pantry" program where we go to the schools and fill the schools pantry so the staff/guidance counselors always have food for hungry children!
2020 and the Coronavirus brought new challenges to the families we support, and our feeding program was adapted and expanded to provide weekly food boxes to almost 700 children in Randolph, Davidson, and Guilford counties during the pandemic school closures.
This summer we delivered food to our food insecure children in the community on a bi-monthly basis. These feeding programs are funded primarily through donations and 100% of the proceeds from our donations go to efforts of the Feeding Program.
Chicken Noodle/Tomato soup, cereal bars, granola bars, Pop Tarts, Vienna sausage, can ravioli or Spaghettios, slim jims, fruit cups, lance crackers, rice crispy treats, box mac & cheese cups, ramen noodles, jelly, and 18 oz. peanut butter
