New Bern Branch Home Page




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 62,780 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 2.5 million pounds of food to our network of 81 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.

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!



Thanks so much to everyone who joined us for our annual Kitchens of New Bern tour! Together we raised enough money to provide more than 72,500 meals to families in need across eastern NC. Special thanks to the homeowners, chefs, and volunteers who made this event such a great success. You are all amazing and we are truly grateful for your support!
