OUR STORY

Feeding Community Since 1982

 
 

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. 

Moving Food

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.

We are a proud member of Feeding America and Feeding the Carolinas.
