CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The venue was a little different this year but the pandemic wouldn’t slow down the Charlotte Hornets from giving back. Trading the Spectrum Center for the parking lot of Ovens Auditorium the Hornets along with Food Lion held their 10th annual Cornucopia.
1,000 families received Thanksgiving meals in a drive-thru set up to make sure everyone stayed safe and distant.
The Official Hunger Relief Partner of the Charlotte Hornets, Food Lion Feeds is donating all the ingredients for a warm Thanksgiving meal: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cut yams, sweet peas, whole kernel corn, macaroni and cheese and cranberry sauce. Hornets partner Coca-Cola Consolidated is providing a two-liter bottle of Sprite for every meal. Each meal contains enough food to feed a family of four, resulting in approximately 4,000 people being served.
