Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC Mourns Clyde Fitzgerald

Triadfoodies would like to express our extreme sympathy to the family of Clyde Fitzgerald and everyone at Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.  Mr. Fitzgerald passed away today, Sunday, November 18, after suffering a heart attack a couple of weeks ago.

To say that Mr. Fitzgerald will be missed is an understatement.  As CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank, his mission was to serve the food insecure and he did so with such a passion.  A true servant to his God and to those in need. He had recently retired this past summer.

I had the benefit of meeting Mr. Fitzgerald a couple of years ago at a dinner benefitting Triad Community Kitchen, now known as Providence Kitchen and Providence Culinary Training and his passion for ending childhood hunger left a lasting impressing on so many.  Just this past June, Governor Roy Cooper awarded Mr. Fitzgerald with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, the highest award for state service.

There are many he’s left behind who aim to continue is legacy. You can too by supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina.
