Operation Veggie Box (OVB) announced today that PotashCorp – Aurora
will help sponsor the upcoming Forum On Hunger which will be held January 25, 2014 at Camp Caroline. PotashCorp is the world’s largest fertilizer company in terms of capacity.
Ray McKeithan, Manager, Public and Government Affairs
PotashCorp – PCS Phosphate Aurora, said that the company has learned of the
exciting things happening with Operation Veggie box and that “We want to participate!”
The Forum On Hunger is an attempt to bring together charitable organizations and churches in Pamlico County to focus on the issue of hunger. OVB wants to create a new conversation on this issue that will elevate public awareness of this challenging concern and to focus local leaders on the need to identify new ideas that can help improve the operations of existing relief agencies. OVB hopes the forum will provide organizations ideas that they can implement to help solve the issue of hunger in the area.
PotashCorp is the second organization that has agreed to help fund this event. Earlier, the Pamlico District Christian Men’s Fellowship, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) partially funded the project.
Operation Veggie Box is a new Christian Ministry started in 2013 at Bethany Christian
Church, Arapahoe. It is actively supported by the surrounding
Christian community of Pamlico County and New Bern.
