WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Thursday afternoon Wilmington Junior League and Nourish NC partnered to fight hunger among New Hanover County students.

The group assembled boxes filled with 12 days worth of food, which will be given to more than 300 elementary, middle, and high school students.

“These are needy children. A lot of times the only meal they are getting are the two meals provided by school. During Spring Break they don’t have these two meals,” said Mary Hedidenreich, President of Wilmington Junior League.

She said the boxes are also filled with nutritional information, easy recipes and that Nourish NC is already working on plans to feed kids during summer break.
