What we do
Feeding the Carolina works in partnership with ten Feeding America affiliated Food Banks (regional distribution centers) to create a hunger-free North and South Carolina. Our members focus on serving and developing resources in their local community while Feeding the Carolinas works across both states to leverage food and financial resources for our regional food banks. We focus on our Farm to Food Bank program, engage in advocacy work, unite the voices around hunger relief, make the connections between food and health, and respond to our communities during times of crisis.
We develop relationships with government, partners, growers, suppliers, donors, and other nonprofits to acquire funding and resources to support food bank operations.
Food and Health
Nutritious food plays a key role in the health of children, adults, and seniors. Well-nourished communities are empowered. We provide education, awareness, and resources to increase well-being.
Our work includes focusing on the root causes of food insecurity and serving as our community’s voice in legislative issues that pertain to alleviating hunger.
Crisis Preparation and Recovery
Our states are regularly at risk from hurricanes and other severe weather events. We’ve created a disaster plan and continue to identify and maintain relationships with other key relief organizations.
Farm to Food Bank
Staff members from our member Food Banks have come together to form Nourishing the Carolinas. Their mission is to accelerate progress toward healthy behavior in Carolina communities.
