HOST A FOOD DRIVE

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!

NEWS & UPDATES

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 »
