The Greenville Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 10 counties in eastern North Carolina including Carteret, Craven, Edgecombe, Greene, Jones, Lenoir, Onslow, Pamlico, Pitt, and Wilson counties. In these counties, more than 149,090 people live in food insecure households, almost a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 8.3 million pounds of food to our network of 95 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 32,645 hours, the equivalent to approximately 16 full-time employees. To learn more, view our Greenville Branch Profile.

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



ON THE BLOG

Food Bank CENC Greenville Branch Blog Post

What motivates people to volunteer? Many feel compassion, a sense of community, and a desire to give to those less fortunate than themselves. We are continually in awe of our volunteers as they give up their free time, and instead work hard to help someone they will likely never meet. Read more in our blog post, Three Kids Who Are Especially Awesome.

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 »
