MetLife Foundation Donates $100,000 to North Carolina Food Bank to Help Those Impacted by Coronavirus

Press Release

CARY, NC, April 1, 2020 — MetLife Foundation announced today that it is donating $100,000 to Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina to help deal with increased demand for their services as a result of coronavirus. 

Food banks face the challenge of getting shelf-stable food into people’s homes as quickly as possible, especially now that vulnerable populations such as the elderly have been advised to practice social distancing. In addition, food banks face greater need from families with children who no longer have access to meals at schools.
