The New Bern Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 5 counties including Carteret, Craven, Jones, Onslow, and Pamlico. This area is also shared with our Greenville Branch. In these counties, more than 59,000 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed 7 million pounds of food (a branch record!) to our network of 73 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 4,418 hours, the equivalent to approximately 2 full-time employees. Our New Bern Branch also has its own community garden that provided 7,500 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to the local community last year. To learn more, view our New Bern Branch Profile.

For every dollar donated, we can provide 5 meals to the New Bern community! Get involved today by making a donation, signing up to volunteer, or hosting a food drive!

Through the Seniors' Health Insurance Information Program (SHIIP) our New Bern Branch can also counsel Craven County Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about Medicare, Medicare supplements, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D, and long-term care insurance. Call 855-408-1212 (toll free) Monday-Friday from 8am to 5pm for free and unbiased information regarding Medicare health care products, Medicare billing errors, and possible fraud and abuse through our NC SMP Program.
