HOST A FOOD DRIVE

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 43,500 people live in food insecure households, a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 4.8 million pounds of food to our network of 96 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 5,728 hours, the equivalent to approximately 3 full-time employees.

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!



BackPack PALS

For information on how to donate to the program or volunteer, please contact the program director, Andrea Flagg, at aflagg[at]foodbankcenc[dot]org or 919.875.0707, ext. 2707.
