“New City Church of Charlotte contacted us and wanted to give back and wanted to serve first responders. They saw us on social media, and probably the news, and they donated everything today. We also have church members here to give back and to actually serve,” a Hungry Heroes volunteer told FOX 46.

Hungry Heroes has held several events for first responders in the Charlotte area before, all to give back to those on the front lines.
