HOST A FOOD DRIVE

The New Bern Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 5 counties including Carteret, Craven, Jones, Onslow, and Pamlico. This area is also shared with our Greenville Branch. In these counties, more than 63,800 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 3.6 million pounds of food to our network of 78 partner agencies in the local community. Our New Bern Branch also has its own community garden that provided 7,500 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to the local community last year. To learn more, view our
New Bern Branch Profile.

For every dollar donated, we can provide 5 meals to the New Bern community! Get involved today by making a donation, signing up to volunteer, or hosting a food drive!
