HOST A FOOD DRIVE

The Durham Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 6 counties including Chatham, Durham, Granville, Orange, Person, and Vance. In these counties, more than 108,940 people live in food insecure households, 31,430 of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 6.5 million pounds of food to our network of 161 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 23,146 hours, the equivalent to approximately 11 full-time employees.

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

Just over one year ago we opened a new Durham Branch facility on Angier Avenue to better serve the Bull City and surrounding counties. After we cut the ribbon, we immediately got to work and settled into our new distribution center. Just one year later we can already see what a difference has been made! Read all about it on our blog: blog.foodbankcenc.org.
