Start 2 Finish Presents the 2nd Annual
Charlotte Youth Fit Fest
Our hungry children don't always know where their next meal is coming from, especially during the holiday breaks when they don't have access to meals at school. 1 in 4 children in our area struggle with hunger and Together We Feed is designed to engage everyone to be a lasting solution to this problem in our city. Children who are hungry perform poorly in school and suffer more illnesses than children who are properly fed.
1 in 4 children in our area won't have
enough to eat this holiday season.
You can make a difference.

Together We Feed Charlotte® (TWF) has a mission to eliminate childhood hunger and develop communities of hope and opportunity. TWF wants to get as much healthy food to as many hungry children as possible, while also building a sense of support and community around each child. By working through Charlotte Mecklenburg School (CMS), we aim to eliminate childhood hunger and food insecurity. We want to feed, care, and connect with children in need so that they develop a well-nourished physical life, leading to a commitment to education and hope for rising out of poverty.
We engage our local businesses partners to inspire children to reach toward a promising future by providing meaningful experiences and relationships. We strive to create pathways of change so our children grow up to contribute their best for a stronger city. Our volunteer opportunities enable individuals to connect with children and families, creating a broader community of trust and hope across the Charlotte area.
