About this event

  • Date: Friday, October 21, 2022
  • Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • Locations: Asheville, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Raleigh, Fayetteville, Elizabeth City

Leadership and volunteering go hand in hand. We want to create space for leaders across NC to come together on the same day, in all regions of the state, to serve alongside each other. LNC’s focus on food insecurity through the Core Program, the pandemic, and economic recession have all highlighted the vulnerability of our fellow North Carolinians. It is timely for us to host alumni and friends of LNC as we serve those in need due to food insecurity.
