Yesterday, we dropped off 275 pounds of food/toiletries to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina (CENC) along with a cash donation. Thank you SO MUCH to all of our customers and neighbors who donated items!
This year, food banks and the local pantries, kitchens and other community organizations that they support are seeing fewer donations while simultaneously facing a greater need. On top of that, food banks have lost federal funding while the high demand persists due to COVID-19. See this News & Observer article about how this is affecting local food pantries.

Thank you so much for your huge donation! Our food distribution this year is nearly doubled, and we could never meet the increased need alone foodbankcenc.org/covid19
