HOST A FOOD DRIVE

The Durham Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 6 counties including Chatham, Durham, Granville, Orange, Person, and Vance. In these counties, more than 106,990 people live in food insecure households, 30,750 of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 7.6 million pounds of food to our network of 173 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 30,132 hours, the equivalent to approximately 14 full-time employees. To learn more, view our Durham Branch Profile. 

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

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 »

Our Summer Newsletter is In!
Read about how your donations can fill in the missing meals for children this summer, as well as upcoming events and food drives. View Hunger Matters Summer 2016 »
