In May of 2016, Weaver Foundation allocated $500,000 to be invested over a two-year period to address hunger in Guilford County. We partnered with several local nonprofits with expertise in this area and collectively began to identify existing gaps in our community around food insecurity and to seek out sustainable solutions to meet those needs.
Our initial focus was Greater Greensboro within the Guilford County Schools (GCS) system. We collaborated with six schools to help address the hunger and food insecurity for their students and families. In recent years support has been focused on local food nonprofits serving children, families, and individuals throughout our community. As of 2022, Weaver Foundation has invested over $1,250,000 through the Food Project.
