Feed NC: The Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC
The mission of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is: No One Goes Hungry in Central & Eastern North Carolina.
Established in 1980, the Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for over 35 years. The Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults through distribution centers in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, the Sandhills (Southern Pines), and Wilmington.
Sadly, food insecurity remains a serious problem in central and eastern North Carolina. In these counties, more than 600,000 people struggle to access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for a healthy life.

Note In The Pocket
Our mission is to engage community involvement to provide clothing and dignity to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County. By creating service opportunities that reduce the imbalance of resources, we teach others how to take action on the behalf of children in need within our community.
We collect and distribute clothing for school aged children from kindergarten through high school. We deliver year-round, so we accept clothing for all seasons throughout the year.
Note in the Pocket has volunteer opportunities available Monday-Friday in 1-4 hour shifts from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. We need help with quality control, sorting, sizing, organizing, and packaging clothing orders.
Clothing processing is done at our Volunteer Center at 5100 Lacy Avenue (off Millbrook Road).
Children aged 12-15 may volunteer when accompanied 1:1 by an adult. Children age 16 may volunteer unaccompanied. Please visit us here to get involved or donate.
