Thanks to you...


We are delighted to share that, thanks to you and the efforts of all of our friends and partners, the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina landed in the top 40 of Food Banks with the most votes on the Walmart Facebook campaign and will receive a Walmart grant of $45,000 to support our Kids Cafe programs!

During the month of April, we asked our supporters, and their friends and family, to vote for the Food Bank on the Walmart Facebook Campaign app. We started with a nice lead in 14th place at the beginning of the month, but started to slip and on the morning of April 30, ended up in 38th place. With an astounding comeback on the last day, members of our community cast over 800 votes, putting us in 22nd place with a total of 3,100 votes.

Thank you again for your partnership and support of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Your efforts on our behalf make such a difference in the lives of those in need in our communities and we are so truly grateful.

We would like to also congratulate our sister North Carolina food banks, Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC in Winston-Salem and Food Bank of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City, who also landed in the top 40 and will be receive a grant to support their mobile food pantries and backpack programs, respectively.
