Dear Friends,

You may have noticed something new when you visited our site – it represents something the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina has been working toward for some time.

Our new logo represents the innovative ways the Food Bank is developing programs addressing root causes of hunger, building new partnerships, and most importantly, nourishing people.

We thought it was time for a broader mission that encompasses everything the Food Bank you know and love has grown to be.

Our mission is to nourish people, so we will continue distributing the healthy, nutritious food people need to thrive.

A big part of our mission is to build solutions, which includes programs like the partnerships we’ve been building with healthcare institutions across our service area.

The final part of our mission is to empower communities, which we work to accomplish through supporting our partner agencies on the front lines, community healthy-cooking classes in our kitchen, and more.

When you volunteer, donate, or see us working in the community, we hope it reminds you of how the Food Bank is evolving in order to have a true impact on hunger, and working to create an environment where North Carolinians thrive.

We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done to support our work as we continue to evolve in how we serve our community.

We’re excited to share more about our refreshed look in the coming weeks, and I hope I can count on your continued support as we head toward our vision that no one goes hungry in central and eastern North Carolina.

Thank you for being part of this journey with us, and thank you for all you do,

President/CEO Peter Werbicki
