Hunger in America 2010
The Hunger in America 2010 study is the first research study to capture the significant connection between the economic downturn and an increased need for emergency food assistance. Feeding America collected quantitative and qualitative feedback from 61,000 face-to-face in-depth interviews with people seeking emergency food assistance and more than 37,000 agency surveys, making this study the largest, most-comprehensive ever conducted on domestic hunger. This report specifically addresses hunger in the service territory of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. View the Hunger in America 2010 full report.(pdf)

An update of the Hunger Study in 2001, this report involves more than 52,000 face-to-face interviews with clients who sought emergency help through America’s Second Harvest (now Feeding America) network of more than 200 food banks and member agencies. This study was completed following the devastating hurricanes of Katrina, Rita and Wilma. The study specifically addresses hunger in the service territory of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina as well as national hunger issues.

Congrats to @Remax for giving us tips to make our House the scariest on the block!
Lighting and music are crucial. You can do more with simple lighting and eerie music than with expensive props. I’ve had children refuse to step on my porch simply because of my Halloween soundtrack and lights arranged to create a bizarre effect.
If you are going out with the kids bundle up, have fun and don’t eat all of your kids candy while they are sleeping. Happy Halloween!
I typically would not make a post about me the feature of the day but this time I am. It’s nice to hear from time to time a thank you. Thank you @JScottGraves for the mention! Have a great weekend everybody!
It’s always great to here the Triangle being among the top places to live in the United States. Thank you @WakeGov for keeping us informed always about the many things that make the Triangle great!
There is so much going on this weekend between the Parade of Homes event and the NC State Fair.The State Fair is a tradition that families in North Carolina seem to go to every year. It’s just something about the carnival atomposhere and Krispy Kreme Donut Burgers that makes one think how can we miss such an event?
Thank you to @WorkTriangleNC for tweeting the fantastic photo of our age old tradition here in North Carolina.
The Featured Tweet of the Day goes to Robuck Homes for winning the Parade of Homes Gold Award for their Powell Place Model Home located in Pittsboro.
