The Food Truck that will provide free meals to
Alamance-Burlington School children during the school breaks
Our goal is to raise the funds to purchase and gift a food truck to the
Alamance-Burlington School System Nutrition Services.
This food truck would allow the ABSS to take meals to
children when school is not in session.

5-5-2020 National Giving Day Fundraising update.
We are thrilled to report that IMPACT ALAMANCE has approved our grant for $50,000 for the food truck!!
That brings our new total is....$88,814 with 95 Donors. We have increased our goal to $110,000 which is the cost of a NEW truck. We have been unable to find a used truck to fit our needs. We are so close!!
4-24-2020 Update...All of our Fundraisers but one have been postponed until a later date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, we have applied for grants and hope that donations of all sizes will still continue to come in, even in these trying times. We will reinstate our other Fundraisers if still needed when social gatherings are allowed again.
This effort will require many supporters! Large and small donations are appreciated. In addition, you can help by spreading the word and encouraging others to participate. Click here to download a printable flier to help spread the word.
