Why We Do What We Do
Food insecurity and food deserts are emerging in our communities, it touches everyone. The struggle to access nutritious and adequate amounts of food on a consistent basis for working families, seniors and children is alarming. We recognized this need and started a community Food Pantry.
How We Do What We Do
Our Food Pantry works collaborative with the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and other community partners to provide access to healthy food options to the families we serve, and together we strive to close the hunger divide.
We served on average 300 households per month our 1st year of operation. Over the past 3 years we’ve grown and our service areas have widened reaching over 6,928 households, over 16, 415 persons and distributing over 243,871 pounds of food.
We stand strong to our commitment enhancing the quality of life of our community before, during and beyond COVID. Helping our neighbors experiencing food insecurities is a great example of this commitment.
The COVID pandemic has contributed to the increase in numbers of individuals and families experiencing food insecurities thus our food pantry and community partners have risen to the challenge.
