Last night I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit Charlotte resident Fantasia Barrino’s home as she hosted a high-profile dinner party, teaming up with Macy’s and Feeding America for their “Come Together” campaign. The goal is to raise 10 million meals for those who struggle with hunger on a regular basis, and to remind us that hunger is more than just something the homeless face every day.

Fantasia, who has been vocal about her story and rise to fame has vowed to commit her life and use her voice to help  those in need since she was once in their shoes. Her efforts will benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. What’s more, Macy’s has committed to match monetary donations until the goal of 10 million meals is met.

Interview with CLT Blog is forthcoming!
