Packaged 100,000 Meals for Local Children

Earlier this year members of the community visited the State Farm Neighborhood Assist site on Facebook to cast nearly 47,000 votes that awarded Nerve2Serve of Melbourne a $25,000 grant to help feed hungry children. Three months later Nerve2Serve and Feeding Children Everywhere put that money to good use, holding a food packing event that produced 100,000 healthy meals for distribution to hungry children in Brevard County. The State Farm contest attracted more than 3,000 submissions, 200 of which were selected for voting on Facebook, Nerve2Serve, a faith based, nonprofit youth driven community service group, recruited hundreds of volunteers to work one-hour shifts to package the meals that were then distributed though their Love Local program.
