Every day, thousands of individuals in our communities ask “Where is my next meal coming from?”
Sadly, food insecurity remains a serious problem in our state. In the counties served by the Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC, nearly 636,920 people struggle to access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for an active and healthy life. 1 in 3 of the people served by the Food Bank’s network are children, and another 8 percent are elderly.
We can make a difference! Join us by participating in Roundabout Raleigh’s Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank. You can make a donation online (97% of every dollar goes to food and food programs), or donate canned goods, packaged foods, and other household necessities (scroll down to see a list of the most needed items) at one of our drop off locations.
