A healthy, hunger-free Northwest
To provide food assistance through a network of partners, while educating and engaging our communities in the elimination of hunger
and its causes.
Feeding Community Since 1982
We believe that addressing hunger and its roots causes is a responsibility shared by the public and private sectors and concerned individuals to ensure the health, vitality, and well-being of our communities and nation.
We believe that building a vibrant, resilient and thriving community requires that we challenge ourselves and others to deeper levels of conversation and action.
We believe that everyone has gifts to share toward ending hunger and its root causes: our time, our talents, food and/or financial resources.
We believe that EVERYONE DESERVES TO EAT.
Feed People, Not Landfills
America has more than enough food to feed everyone. But our abundance is accompanied by tremendous waste. By some estimates, nearly half of the food grown, processed, and transported in the U.S. goes to waste, as millions of Americans struggle to put food on the table.
It was these contrasting realities that led to the innovation of “food banking.” Working with retail grocers, farmers, food manufacturers, processors, and others, Second Harvest Food Bank’s food recovery operations prevent good food from going to waste by instead distributing it to local, food assistance programs.
Every day, we move 50+ tons of food through our warehouses and out to our network of 430+ partner programs, many of which rely on Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina for the majority of the food they provide. Together, with people like you, we work to make sure that any resident who needs help to feed themselves or their family can access the healthy food they need to live healthy, productive lives.
More Than Food
Supporting access to healthy food for all residents is vitally important to individual and community health, as is our work to address the root causes of food insecurity and poverty. Our work beyond providing food for today includes a nationally-recognized culinary training program, nutrition education, advocating for policies that strengthen families, and convening and collaborating with others to build locally relevant solutions to hunger and poverty.
