About Food Insecurity

Food insecurity in our communities was a significant challenge before the pandemic struck. Now, Feeding America estimates that 1 in  6 Northwest North Carolinians may be food insecure, while 1 in every 5 children is living at risk of going without enough to eat.

To effectively address the challenges of hunger and poverty requires that all of us work together - people like you, along with businesses, government, and the nonprofit sector.
