Biochemistry Volunteers at the Central and Eastern NC Food Bank

The Biochemistry Department’s Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee organized a group to volunteer at the Central and Eastern North Carolina Food Bank on December 15. Included was Mike Boyce, the D&I Committee Chair, his partner Sol Enos, Laura Ganser, Emily McFadden, her partner Andrew Pericak, Brittany Bisnett, Amanuel Kibrom, Catherine Ehrhart, Eileen Burchfiel, Blanca Rodriguez, Abhishek Chhetri, Jeff Smith, and two of our friends from the Department of Chemistry, Anita Donlic and Sarah Wicks. The group helped sort and bag produce that will be distributed to food insecure families across North Carolina. The Department of Biochemistry is proud to support the significant efforts of its D&I Committee and many other Department members who engage in activities that benefit the greater Durham-Raleigh communities and beyond.
