Find Help

We are ready to respond to the need in our communities following Hurricane Florence as soon as conditions are safe. We are coordinating with local Partner Agencies across our service area. The agencies on this list represent our primary disaster relief sites – however their availability will depend on the effects of Hurricane Florence in their region.




Food Bank Update

Wednesday, September 19
New Bern, Sandhills, Greenville, Durham, and Raleigh Branches will be open normal operating hours. Wilmington Branch will remain closed. 

These decision are made with the safety of our staff and volunteers as top priority. Please check local conditions before venturing out on the roads. 

 



How You Can Help

After Hurricane Florence has made landfall, we anticipate thousands of children, families, and seniors in our community will be without power, food, and water. And we know this could just be the beginning. In response, we will be providing emergency food, water, and supplies - for as long as it is needed. Your generosity helps the Food Bank provide emergency and increased assistance to our partner agencies, and to those who have lost so much

The most needed items for disaster relief are:
 · High-protein canned meals with pop-top cans (ravioli, soups, spaghetti)
 · Paper goods and products (paper towels/plates/cups/napkins, plastic utensils)
 · Diapers
 · Hygiene products (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, etc.)
 · Single serving meals that do not require refrigeration or cooking/meals ready to eat
 · Single serving snacks such as raisins & granola bars
 · Peanut Butter
 · Cleaning supplies and disinfectant wipes

Your support throughout disaster relief efforts provides essential meals for our hungry neighbors. Together, we can help people in their greatest time of need.  Once disaster relief and recovery needs have been met, any remaining funds and food will be used to support our ongoing hunger-relief efforts.

The Greenville Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 10 counties in eastern North Carolina including Carteret, Craven, Edgecombe, Greene, Jones, Lenoir, Onslow, Pamlico, Pitt, and Wilson counties. In these counties, more than 145,000 people live in food insecure households, almost a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 15.8 million pounds of food to our network of 185 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served over 21,000 hours, the equivalent to approximately 10 full-time employees. To learn more, view our Greenville Branch Profile.

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