Fiscal Year 2015-2016 Results
The Food Bank of Central
& Eastern North Carolina is pleased to report the following results of the
2015-2016 fiscal year organizational goals:
- Our annual revenue was slightly
below budget at year end. Some revenue was offset in capital by in kind gifts. Three-year strategic plan will roll over to Fiscal Year 2016-2017.
- 64.4m million pounds of food and
other essential items were distributed by year end (+6.8 million pounds). Our
retail pounds significantly increased by 3.1 million pounds. We were able to
hire an additional Retail and Produce Food Solicitor. Five of our six sites
successfully completed the American Institute of Baking audits in food safety—our
sixth site is not scheduled until fall of this 2016.
- 210,000 meals were provided through our Kids
Summer Meals Program 2015. Hot meals catering was a big success and plans are
underway to develop further partnerships for next year. Additionally, new
software is being defined to enhance program reports and the “Super Site”
concept is being evaluated. A new Food & Nutrition Services Outreach staff
member was hired earlier this year to focus on the senior community and has met
the goal in advance of the timeline. Eleven School Pantry sites were
strategically identified and added.
