Recap: Sharity Food Drive 2011


Food has always been an integral part of game development. Pizza at meetings, late night-communal dinners for teams in crunch, team room snack boxes – it’s part of the business.  As such, it seemed natural for Red Storm to get involved with doing something about hunger in our community, and to try to share some of the good fortune that we have with our neighbors here in North Carolina.

And so, for over half a decade, Red Storm Entertainment has been running an office food drive every year at Thanksgiving for the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina. Supported by the company, we’ve donated food and additional contributions, with the amount we’ve shared steadily rising. 2011 marked our biggest year yet, with nearly 1700 pounds of food donated and then transported by RSE team members to the Food Bank’s Durham branch.
