The Sandhills Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 4 counties including Lee, Moore, Richmond, and Scotland. In these counties, more than 43,280 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 3.9 million pounds of food to our network of 98 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 8,311 hours, the equivalent to approximately 4 full-time employees. To learn more, view our Sandhills Branch Profile.

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

NEWS & UPDATES

Corporate Opportunity to Help Us Stop Summer Hunger
Summer for 300,000 children in the Food Bank’s 34-county service area doesn’t mean going to camp or the pool. It means they won’t be at school and will lose access to free and reduced-cost breakfast and lunch. Help us provide 3.3 million meals to these children and their families by joining us in our Stop Summer Hunger campaign. Learn more »
