Sixteen employees from the CBRE|Raleigh office volunteered at the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina in Raleigh on May 1, making this visit the seventh year in a row the company has been active with the organization.
Employees went to the Food Bank’s new distribution warehouse located off Capital Boulevard for a volunteer shift in the afternoon. The group helped sort through pallets of green peppers and eggplant that were recently donated to the organization. CBRE|Raleigh employees inspected, sorted and packaged thousands of pounds that equated to roughly 3,074 meals for individuals throughout the community.
The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for over 35 years. The Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults through distribution centers in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, the Sandhills (Southern Pines), and Wilmington.
