Run 5 Feed 5 is a 501c3 organization that hosts events throughout the year including a 5K walk/run in the Spring and a Trinity High School Alumni basketball tournament in the Fall 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!

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. In addition, we are now offering a food pantry for local schools to come and pick up needed items outside of delivery weeks.
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.

100% of the proceeds from our fundraising go to organizations that provide for food insecure children. One of the programs we provide funding for is the Backpack Pals. Each Friday, the backpack program sends bags of food home with food insecure children, through local Elementary, Middle and High Schools. These feeding programs are funded primarily through donations. In an effort to raise money for these programs and others that provide food for hungry children, we completed our 8th Annual RUN 5 FEED 5, which took place at Creekside Park in Archdale on Saturday, May 1, 2021.
