Hurricane Matthew Relief

If you live in a Matthew-affected area and need food, the Disaster Ready Partner Agencies on this list are there for you.

Thanks to your support, here's the help we've been able to provide (as of Oct. 20)

In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, thousands of our neighbors are without food, water and basic supplies. The Food Bank CENC is poised to deliver life sustaining food, water, and non-food essentials to the thousands impacted by this storm. If you would like to support our disaster efforts, here's what you can do:

  • Donate Funds: Donate online at For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide 5 meals. 
  • Shop our Virtual Food Drive: Buy groceries for affected families through our Virtual Food Drive »
  • Donate Food/Items: During a disaster, these are the items we need the most. We have a strong need for personal hygiene, cleaning, and paper products. (We ask that you make every effort to drop off your food drive at one of our 6 warehouse locations, as our trucks and drivers are working extra hard to make Disaster Relief Deliveries.)
  • Spread Awareness: Encourage your friends to join the Hurricane Matthew Relief efforts. Click to share: Twitter Facebook
  • Volunteer: We need volunteers in the Durham area to collect food donations on Oct. 29 (10am-4pm) and Oct 30 (noon-4pm). Email for more info & to sign up.




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!
