RALEIGH, N.C. (September 2, 2022) – On Thursday, September 1, more than 180 Coastal Credit Union employees collaborated to package 55,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger.  The service project to help address global hunger also marked Coastal’s 55th anniversary.  The project was coordinated by Coastal’s Credit Union Development Educators.

“There are over 800 million people in the world who are considered food insecure,” said Darron Stover, Program Manager for Rise Against Hunger. “Yet, the world produces enough food for every single person to have four pounds per day. Hunger is a matter of logistics and commitment.  It’s not just about the food; it’s about engaging people. And to be able to have Coastal employees come out here and participate in our fight to end hunger–that’s what it’s all about.”
