HOST A FOOD DRIVE

The Wilmington Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 4 counties in southeastern North Carolina including Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover and Pender. In these counties, more than 74,740 people live in food insecure households, almost a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 7.2 million pounds of food to our network of 108 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 13,932 hours, the equivalent to nearly 7 full-time employees. To learn more, view our Wilmington Branch Profile.

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


Special thanks to Building A Better Wilmington of UNCW for producing this wonderful video about how we feed people in need in eastern NC!

Chef's FeastChef's Feast.jpg
Thanks so much to all who attended our first annual Chef’s Feast event benefiting our Wilmington Branch! Chef Vivian Howard, owner of Kinston-based Chef & the Farmer, appeared thanks to AARP North Carolina along with several local chefs including Chef Keith Rhodes from Catch restaurant. Guests enjoyed a night full of delicious food and drink, all while raising enough funds to provide 135,000 meals to those living with food insecurity in the Wilmington area. It was a wonderful night! Special thanks to our presenting sponsors Harris Teeter and AARP and all of the amazing chefs who made the night possible! View photos from the event on our Flickr page.
