Our partnership with the Food Bank ofCentral & Eastern North Carolina was born fromacts of generosity, collaboration, and a desire to improvelives in ourcommunity. The Food Bank had received a large donation of sweet potatoes from a local famer, John Bone of Bone Farms, a family farm in Nashville, NC. Looking for a way to makethe produce available to its local agencies, the Food Bank reached out us – and we couldn’t have been happier to help.
Our first effort was to createco-branded, recyclablepackagingfor the donated sweet potatoes. But we wanted to do more so we brought in our partnersat Berry Cold, a family-run processing facilityin Eastern NC. Together,wefacilitated a local Blueberryproduct to add to the Food Bank’s produce distribution.
The Food Bank works with local organizations every day to help put an end to hunger in the state of North Carolina. Through an intricate network of over 900 partner agencies, such as homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and private businesses, The Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC works to nourish people, build solutions,and empower communities. Seal the Seasons believes that our local food systemis an integral part of community empowermentand we are proud to be part of the work theyare doing.
