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 73,790 people live in food insecure households, almost a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 6.3 million pounds of food to our network of 92 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 13,788 hours, the equivalent to approximately 6 full-time employees.

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!
