Holt brothers, former NCSU stars, bag food for Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Former N.C. State football stars Torry and Terrence Holt were at the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina Monday to help assemble 2,000 Thanksgiving dinner bags for needy families.

The bags will be distributed by the food bank through its network of partner agencies.

The bags contain products for an easy Thanksgiving meal including  ham, stuffing, sweet potatoes, buttery mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, gravy and an apple pie.

The Holt brothers are partnering with Harris Teeter in the effort.

"We want to encourage others to step up and make a difference in their communities as well," Torry Holt said.  

The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina launched its Kids Cafe program in 1999 with five Kids Cafe sites.  The program currently supports 26 Kids Cafe sites in 25 counties, serving approximately 1,700 children.

The Holt brothers planned to distribute bags at a Kids Café site at First Baptist Church of Wilson's Mills.

"Hunger affects more than 560,000 individuals in our service area year round," said Peter Werbicki, President and CEO of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
