The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina (the Food Bank) is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for our friends and neighbors facing hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina for 40 years. The Food Bank is an affiliate member of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger relief charity. In terms of total food distributed, the Food Bank ranks in the top 15 nationally among 200 Feeding America food banks and first in North Carolina. Our food distribution programs and child nutrition programs are based on national models.
Throughout the years, the associates of the Raleigh complex have held food drives to benefit the organization. In 2019, we collected 365 pounds of food which (according to the Food Bank) converts into 438 meals and with the addition of cash donations, we were able to provide a total of 1693 meals.
