Charlotte Hornets Foundation award its hunger grant

Feb. 8. The Charlotte Hornets Foundation has donated $25,000 to Angels & Sparrows.

The donation was made to help the Huntersville-based organization purchase a new convection oven, induction range and ice maker for its year-round community kitchen, which serves more than 450 marginalized families in North Mecklenburg County.

The upgraded kitchen appliances were installed in November.

In addition to providing meals through its dining room and marketplace, Angels & Sparrows offers an emergency food pantry and a Summer Bag Lunch Program that serves students at risk of going hungry when school is not in session.

“We are thankful for the generous donation from the Charlotte Hornets Foundation,” said Angels & Sparrows Executive Director Jessika Tucker of Cornelius.

“Angels & Sparrows is much more than just a food kitchen; sharing a meal is the cornerstone of community, empowering individuals to look to the future for a path forward once their body and soul are nourished. This new equipment enables us to provide more meals, more connections and more hope to our underserved neighbors in North Mecklenburg County.”
