N.C. Labor Federation Teams Up with Food Bank, Teachers Association to Deliver 500 Bags of Food to Wake Co. Students Ahead of May 16th Public Education Advocacy Day

Feeding Students While Fighting for the Public Schools They Deserve

(RALEIGH, May 15, 2018) -- North Carolina's labor federation teamed up with the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, the N.C. A. Philip Randolph Institute, and the Wake County Association of Educators to help make sure Wake County students who rely on school-provided meals will not go hungry because Wake County Public Schools canceled classes during the May 16th "March for Students and Rally for Respect." The NC State AFL-CIO delivered four pallets of food donated by the Food Bank and sorted into 500 "weekend packs" to Ligon Middle School in Raleigh for distribution by Wake County teachers to students in need across the county today.


The North Carolina State AFL-CIO is the largest association of unions of working people in North Carolina, representing a hundred and forty-five thousand members, working together for good jobs, safe workplaces, workers’ rights, consumer protections, and quality public services on behalf of ALL working people.
