Donate FOOD. Every can helps! We rely on the generosity of many generous donors for the food we distribute, including community food drives conducted by individuals and organizations; donations through our national organization - Feeding America; the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services USDA Commodity Program; a State Nutrition Assistance grant; local food manufacturers, distributors, processors and farmers; local grocery stores and their Reclamation Centers; a Community Garden; and local restaurants, caterers and food service organizations.

VOLUNTEER. Volunteers are making a difference every day at the Second Harvest Food Bank. More than 2,000 volunteers annually donate their time, talents and energy to help sort, package and label food and help out with office work. Volunteers also are needed to help out with special programs and events that take place away from our warehouse facility. For example to serve meals and tutor children participating in the Kids Cafe program, to help out at the Community Garden and to work on our special events. Learn more.
