Our local network of Partner Agency food pantries in Jones County are still closed due to damage form Florence. So for the first time in FBCENC’s nearly 40-year history, we are operating our own pantry.
We are very excited to have a new online self-scheduling system that makes it more efficient to see available volunteer sessions, reserve a spot, and send an invite link to group members!
Every day is different. I have enjoyed all my shifts at the Food Bank CENC, but I have really enjoyed the relationships that I have formed with the other volunteers and employees.
Jacqueline uses our Mobile Kitchen Kits to teach children all about healthy foods and how to prepare them. Even the vegetable lesson was a hit!
My name is Jenny Ryan and I am the new Nutrition Education Coordinator. I am excited to be out with the neighbors we serve to showcase easy low-cost recipes across our 34 counties.
It’s been several months since Hurricane Florence hit, and then lingered over North Carolina, impacting almost all the Food Bank’s 34-county service area. We knew immediately that recovery and rebuilding would take along time, and the Food Bank committed ourselves to supporting our friends and neighbors for the long haul.
“It’s hard to believe that people could survive on so little,” Chris said after looking at the qualifications for the CSFP Program. “Unfortunately, it is all too real.” Nearly 50,000 seniors in our 34-county service area live at or below the poverty level.
Adelphia CDC Inc. is just one of the organizations that was able to rise to the occasion and help the many people impacted by the recent disasters.
