What Percentage of Income is Spent on How SNAP Supports Retailers; A Hot and Humid Walk in the Woods; Support from Phillips Management Group

Hunger Fact of the Day: More than 10% of all spending on food to be eaten at home comes from SNAP spending. In one month in 2016, SNAP funded around $174,341,866.51 of sales in North Carolina. – Source, Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC

Over the last few years, Phillips Management Group has REALLY stepped up their efforts to support Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC. In fact, they have won the Piedmont Triad Apartment Association’s Owner’s Cup for raising the most food (per unit) of all the management company members of the association.

Phillips is very active in the community in many other ways, including actively supporting the work of Partners Ending Homelessness, as well as participating in innumerable community service projects in the many cities in which they have property.

They donated enough for a week’s worth of sponsorship and this walk constituted day 4. They provided me with some really nice shirts for the walk, and I’m glad they’re going to let me hold onto them because, as you’ll see from the pictures, they got more than a little sweaty! Much thanks to Maria, Brandon and the entire team at Phillips for supporting the walk (and PTAA’s Food Drive) and for continuing to be leaders in our community!



Activity Day 58: Walked the Bicentennial Greenway in north High Point and all I can say is that it was H-O-T, humid and occasionally smelly (the creek the trail parallels can smell a little like a urinal). Still, it provides some really nice scenery and there are enough small hills to make it more interesting than walking the streets around here.

Miles walked/run: 9.15 miles. Here’s the screenshot from my FitBit:


Miles remaining in challenge: 54.24
