Run 5 Feed 5 is a 501c3 organization that hosts events throughout the year including a 5K walk/run in the Spring, a Trinity High School Alumni basketball tournament in the Fall, 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 is going hungry, and our goal is to fight that statistic!
This is a great event to kick off the Christmas season 🎄
Help share the Christmas joy to others through the SerCo Cheerfund and the Run5Feed5 Christmas backpacks 🎅🧑🎄

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, box pasta, canned spaghetti sauce, box mac & cheese, jelly, 18 oz. peanut butter, and bottle water
