In the wake of Hurricane Matthew, thousands of our neighbors are without food, water and basic supplies. The Food Bank CENC is poised to deliver life sustaining food, water, and non-food essentials to the thousands impacted by this storm. If you would like to support our disaster efforts, here's what you can do:

  • Donate Funds: Donate online at foodbankcenc.org/matthew For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide 5 meals. 
  • Shop our Virtual Food Drive: Buy groceries for affected families through our Virtual Food Drive »
  • Donate Food/Items: During a disaster, these are the items we need the most. We have a strong need for personal hygiene, cleaning, and paper products. (We ask that you make every effort to drop off your food drive at one of our 6 warehouse locations, as our trucks and drivers are working extra hard to make Disaster Relief Deliveries.)
  • Spread Awareness: Encourage your friends to join the Hurricane Matthew Relief efforts. Click to share: Twitter Facebook




The Raleigh Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 13 counties including Duplin, Franklin, Halifax, Harnett, Johnston, Nash, Sampson, Wake, Warren, and Wayne. In these counties, more than 314,680 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 26.3 million pounds of food to our network of 330 partner agencies in the local community as well as our five other branches. Our Raleigh volunteers served 55,028 hours, the equivalent to approximately 26 full-time employees. To learn more, view our
Raleigh Branch Profile.

For every dollar donated, we can provide 5 meals to people living with food insecurity in our 34 county service area! Make a difference today by donating online or hosting a food drive!


Food Bank CENC Raleigh Branch Blog Post

Seniors, more than any other age group, do not seek help for food assistance. That means that the majority of low-income older Americans in our country do not receive the help available to them, and instead suffer silently in their homes on empty stomachs. Thousands of Seniors Suffer Silently.
