In just a few minutes I’ll be getting on the road and heading toward Myrtle Beach, SC. Today I’m participating in the 17th Annual Friends Feeding Friends Food Drive, an annual event run by Lowes Foods. I’ll be running a cash register for the first time in an embarrassing number of years and hopefully not making a fool out of myself. The last time I had to ring anything up was at my first job as a Waffle House waitress and let’s just say things have changed a bit in the interim, for both cash registers and myself. Waffle Houses are still basically the same.
“This is the seventeenth year that Lowes Foods has partnered with local food banks to help feed families in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. This year’s goal is to collect more than 600,000 pounds of food to provide around 504,000 meals to those in need. Currently, stores have received nearly 40,000 pounds.”
Lowes Foods will also be donating a meal for each new facebook fan. And if you live in North or South Carolina and have Lowes Foods in your area, consider following Lowes Foods on Twitter where they announce events like Friends Feeding Friends, specials, and other items of interest.
If you’re in the Myrtle Beach area, I’ll be at the 970 Ciprano Drive location from 10am until noon. Feel free to come out to point and laugh at me or to just say hi, whichever feels more appropriate. It’s for a good cause, I’d love to see you there.
