Fighting Hunger

Children's Hunger Elimination of Wilson actually formed in 2011. However, during 2012 the group has continued to grow and gained its nonprofit tax status. CHEW, which is made up of churches, individuals, business leaders and school officials, formed after the group became aware that the only full meals some Wilson County children received were while they were at school. The group laid the groundwork and established a backpack program to ensure children don't go hungry on weekends and during school breaks.
