Hello friends,

I’m thrilled to personally welcome you to our blog, the newest addition to our online community.

Here at the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, our mission is to ensure that No One Goes Hungry in our 34-county service area. Through branches in Raleigh, Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Wilmington and the Sandhills region, we distribute food and non-food essentials to 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults.

Here on our blog we will share the stories of the more than 560,000 individuals in our service area who struggle with hunger every day. We will share stories of donors, volunteers and community partners, and the things they do to make a difference in the lives of so many. We will also share exciting local events and more ideas for how you can help your community.

We are excited for the opportunity to strengthen the conversation around hunger, to share more information with you, and to empower you with the knowledge that will not only keep you connected to the Food Bank, but will allow you to work with us in our mission that No One Goes Hungry in Central & Eastern North Carolina.

Thank you for your partnership and compassion for those we serve. We look forward to supporting a vibrant online community and providing quality news that you’ll find exciting and informative.
