North Carolina Food Banks
Some North Carolina food banks with website links to them.
Just a little advice if you want to donate to a food bank in North Carolina. While most will gladly accept food, it is money they really need. On November 26th 2020 I happened to be listening to a radio station. WFNZ out of Charlotte North Carolina was putting on an event started by Mark "Pacman" Packer a on air radio sports show host.
This event is called the "Street Turkey's" and raises food and money annually for the Second Harvest Food Bank (more on them later) who then divides it with Loaves and Fishes.
Second Harvest Food Bank's Executive Director Kay Carter was on air with Mark Packer. She told him that they can get 6 pounds of food for $1 through special deals with grocery stores or other merchants. So instead of spending $10 on some food to donate, I recommend donating the money to a North Carolina Food Bank of your choice. They can make that money go a long way. Plus they know what they need to buy, that is in real demand at the time.
This article about North Carolina Food Banks will contain a brief description of each one and website links, as well as other contact information each listing. Please consider donating something, and not just around the Holidays.
Second Harvest Food Bank
Click the website here for additional information about Second Harvest Food Bank. What I like about Second Harvest is that they serve as a warehouse and help out over 600 agencies from 14 counties in North Carolina. They have been helping the hungry in NC since 1981 and can get the resources' to where they are needed.
Loaves and Fishes
This is a Charlotte Food Bank which was mentioned in an earlier paragraph of this article, click their site link here. Loaves and Fishes is nondenominational and non profit organization serving Mecklenburg County.
Manna Food Bank
Check out Manna's webpage by clicking this link. Manna services hunger needs in Western North Carolina. The Manna Foodbank is located at 627 Swannanoa Road in Ashville NC. You can telephone them at 828-299-3663, or call the Franklin Branch at 828-369-7773.

You can get more information by looking here for their webpage and they are located in Raleigh, Durham, Greenville, Wilmington and Sandhills. They are a non profit outfit that helps fight hunger in 34 Tarheel Counties and have been since 1980.
I hope you found this article useful and if none of these stuck your fancy I am sure each city has Churches that can direct you where to donate in your area. Thanks for reading this on .com.
