Hurricane Florence 2018 Updates:
The Feeding the Carolinas network of Food Banks in South Carolina and North Carolina continue to help those in need from the devastating impact of Hurricanes Florence and Michael. We are working closely with Feeding America and other agency partners and corporate supporters to get needed supplies and food to the affected areas.
The impact of Florence is not finished, as rivers crest and areas flood. It will be a months-long recovery effort so ongoing support is definitely needed.
The best way to help? We do have a “Donate” button that can be used for monetary gifts – we will use and distribute funds to the food banks as needed, and a financial donation gives us the most flexibility in helping those in need. Also, you can give directly to any NC/SC food bank on their respective websites.
Thanks in advance for your support!
