Grab & Go Meals for Kids during COVID-19 @ Multiple locations & times
Mar 31 – Jun 30 all-day

With schools out due to COVID-19, there are active locations across our service area providing free grab-and-go meals for children. We will be updating the list as often as needed.

In addition, Sheetz has announced they are offering free Kidz Meal Bagz at these locations.

List of Grab & Go Meals for Kids

  • Food will be distributed by volunteers at curbside or other designated area to minimize safety concerns.
  • Social distancing is to be enforced by all.
  • The food will be placed in safe and sanitized food containers.
  • You will not be required to show ID.
  • Children do not have to be present with you to pick up food.

Any organizations interested in filling a need and setting up meal pick up location(s) in our service area can submit a request to serve meals for kids.

More places to find food:

Anyone in our 34-county service area who needs help with food can visit our Food Finder page to look up local members of our partner agency network. (Live outside our service area? Find your local food bank here.)

 

More ways to give help:

As we shift our inventory to be as nimble as possible to meet the ever-changing need, funds are the resource we need most. They allow us to make purchases in bulk, and tailor our operation as needed in the coming days and weeks.

Also, the Food Bank greatly relies on our volunteers, especially in times of crisis. If you are a healthy adult and want to volunteer, you can self-schedule a shift at foodbankcenc.org/volunteer

Canceled – Greenville #StopSummerHunger Kick Off @ Pitt County Schools & Recreation Building
May 26 @ 9:15 am – 10:30 am
Canceled - Greenville #StopSummerHunger Kick Off @ Pitt County Schools & Recreation Building

As the weather heats up, many North Carolinians start planning vacations and days by the pool. But in the 34 counties the Food Bank serves, just over 300,000 (1 in 5) children are eligible for free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch at school, and rely on the free and reduced-cost meals at school to get them through the day. During the summer, school meals are no longer available. For them, summertime doesn’t mean a fun-filled vacation. For them, no school means no meals.

Stop Summer Hunger is our annual initiative to raise awareness, funds, and food to feed these children and their families during this season of increased need. Join other Greenville-area hunger fighters as we kick off #StopSummerHunger 2020. We will be recognizing Partner Agencies who are feeding children as well as Sponsors who are supporting the #StopSummerHunger initiative.

Light breakfast foods and beverages will be served. Free parking available.

RSVP to George Young, Eastern Regional Director at gyoung@FoodBankCENC.org
