Feed The Rivalry

#FeedTheRivalry, Feed the Food Bank


Rivalry week in the Triangle is in full swing as UNC visits N.C. State this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. (pipe down Duke fans, it’s football). In addition to providing you week-long coverage of this historic rivalry, the Sports Channel 8 team will be doing our part to help feed those in need in our community. We’re recruiting businesses to take part in our #FeedTheRivalry campaign to benefit the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. 

On game day of UNC vs N.C. State up until the 3:30p kickoff, tweet #FeedTheRivalry at our Twitter handle and for every Tweet, we’re challenging businesses to donate $1 to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. For every dollar donated, the Food Bank can provide $10.00 worth of food or five meals. Our friends at Your Service Professional have already stepped up the challenge!

Established in 1980, the Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for 30 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.

Your Service Professional is a locally owned and operated heating, cooling, and plumbing contracting company that services residential and commercial customers. We appreciate them being the first business to participate in our campaign and helping the community.

Help up #FeedTheRivalry and fight hunger!
