HOST A FOOD DRIVE

The Sandhills Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 4 counties including Lee, Moore, Richmond, and Scotland. In these counties, more than 40,000 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.

Last year we distributed more than 4.9 million pounds of food to our network of 90 partner agencies in the local community. Our volunteers at the branch served 12,000 hours, the equivalent to nearly 6 full-time employees. To learn more, view our Sandhills Branch Profile.

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