Interfaith Food Drive (month long)
Feb 1 – Feb 29 all-day

Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu-Salha had big ideas for how they wanted to help the world. One of Deah’s last facebook posts was of an evening where he and Yusor were giving food and free dental supplies to the homeless in downtown Durham. Razan, was a regular at Raleigh’s Moore Square, not only with sandwiches for the homeless but also special messages she tucked into the sustenance. The total of the last five drives has translated into over a quarter of a million meals donated to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina for those in need.

There are 3 ways to get involved this year!

  1. Donate food at any of these locations
  2. Donate funds through our Virtual Food Drive
  3. Drop off donations Saturday, February 29th from 10am-2pm at the Islamic Center of Raleigh.

For more details please see The Lighthouse Project’s Facebook event page!

Singles Night
Feb 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Meet the love of your life, rain or shine! Singles Night is still on, but please be safe traveling to the Food Bank. See you tonight!

Food is love! The Food Bank is looking to provide the community with both, this Valentines season.

Our first ever Singles Night volunteer events will be held on Thursday, February 6 at our Raleigh Branch and Durham Branch. The volunteer shift will run from 6pm-7:30pm. There is a suggested donation of $20 per volunteer – which can provide 100 additional meals to the community!

But the evening doesn’t end there. The fun and mingling will continue after the meals are packed, thanks to our event partners. In Raleigh, volunteers can walk across the parking lot to Mordecai Beverage Co.  In Durham, Boxcar Bar + Arcade is providing tokens and some prizes to Food Bank volunteers, after the volunteer session!
