Each year, CFIC’s charitable foundation, the Retail Consumer Alliance (RCA), contributes $50,000 to the Feeding the Carolinas food banks and offers $100,000 to industry-connected students in North and South Carolina through the Everett and Trudy Suddreth Scholarship of Excellence program. These charitable contributes are made possible through the CFIC’s online Silent Auction. You can support CFIC’s efforts by donating or purchasing an item or making a monetary contribution.

Registered company reps will also receive a coupon packet for frozen, refrigerated, or perishable products that don’t lend themselves to the sampler sacks. The CFIC Café also allows attendees to sample assorted snacks, treats and beverages, and provides a place where breakfast and lunch will be offered, highlighting delicious foods from various convention sponsors.
