Cape Fear Community College President Dr. Ted D. Spring recently volunteered to work as the celebrity chef at a pancake breakfast at Trinity United Methodist Church in Wilmington on Jan. 12.

The event raised $1,175 for Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, which provides food for needy residents in the local area. Church officials were pleased with the results of the event and said that it raised more money than previous breakfasts.

Once a month, any needy individual or family may come to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard to receive a 3-5 day supply of groceries. People without stoves receive a smaller bag and are served weekly. Those requesting food are asked to show identification and self-declare their need. For more information about Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard visit http://www.motherhubbardsnc.org/
