SANDHILLS BRANCH HOME

The Sandhills Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 4 counties in south central North Carolina. They are Lee, Moore, Richmond and Scotland counties. One county served is shared with the Raleigh Branch, Lee county.

Last year over 5.1 million pounds of food was distributed to 100 agencies in those counties. The Food Bank at Sandhills operates two trucks that traveled over 42,047 miles last year. Volunteers donated over 6,257 hours of their time last year, equivalent to approximately three full-time employees.

In the counties served by the Sandhills branch, over 34,000 individuals are at risk of hunger: 12,000 are children and over 8% are 65 years and over.

Students Against Hunger
October-December, 2014
Did you know that almost 50% of students in our 34 county service area qualify for free or reduced-price lunch? It is difficult for any student to excel academically when they come to school hungry. So we invite all students, staff, parents and teachers to join our Students Against Hunger food and funds drive to help feed hungry children and their families in our community.
