Hurricane Matthew Relief

Live in a Matthew-affected area and need food?
The Disaster Ready Partner Agencies on this list are there for you »

After Hurricane Matthew hit, thousands of North Carolinians unexpectedly needed support. With your support, we've distributed over 2 million pounds of disaster relief food, water, and supplies (on top of our regular day to day operations). 

Thanks to your generosity, we helped partner agencies across our service area keep up with the startling jump in need. In their time of need, families turned to Food Bank CENC and our partner agencies. And we're so grateful that we could turn to you.

With the holidays approaching, the need is still great - if not greater than before - for our neighbors affected by Hurricane Matthew. Families who lost their homes, jobs, or perishable food during power outages are on tighter budgets than ever before. The challenges facing our neighbors are not over.

Thanks to your donations, the Food Bank will be with our neighbors for as long as necessary. If you would like to support (or continue supporting) our efforts, here’s how you can help.

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!
