Schools spreads awareness about hunger

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Students at the Cape Fear Center for Inquiry want more people to know about those battling hunger in our state.

The students have held a canned food drive for the past seven years.

This year 408 students from the school created paper links for a .75 mile long chain. Each link represents a person who is dependent on a food bank in New Hanover County.

Students will hold the chain on up the chain on Monday morning with a sight reading, "Each link represents a person in New Hanover County that is food bank-dependent, #wecare #CFCIstrong."

A parent will fly a drone of the presentation to capture the images and spread awareness about hunger in the area.
