The kids and families came from Second Harvest Food Bank’s Kids Café Sites around our area. In SHFB’s 19 county region of North and South Carolina, there are over 180,000 children living in poverty. The Food Bank’s Kids Café Program provides nutritious meals and snacks to at-risk children throughout our region. Sites include Boys and Girls Clubs, YWCAs and low-income after-school programs. The Food Bank sponsors 44 Kids Café sites in the Metrolina Region.
In the interview above, Cam opens up to the media about his love of giving back to the community and making these kids a reason to smile and have fun when he’s both on and off the football field.
It might be a rough Thanksgiving for Cam this year. He follows a pescetarian diet of fish and other seafood.
“It’s been challenging at times especially being around in the locker room and gets guys eating hot wings, nachos, hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.”
And when asked what he ate down in Miami, Florida winning his 7th straight game in a row, he said he “had some great dolphin.”
Watch his interview with WPEG Power 98’s Yasmin Young from the “Morning Maddhouse” below as she talks with Cam about how kids can handle bullying in schools, his musical taste, his favorite video games and the importance of getting an education. Who would have thought that Cam’s Dre Beats before a game would have a mix of hip-hop, Maroon 5, and The Fray?
