Your Food Bank After Florence

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.

Together, We’re In It For The Long Haul

President/CEO Peter Werbicki: It’s important to continue to remember the children, seniors, and families who were hit hardest by the storm. Many have lost everything. For those who were already struggling to provide for their family’s basic needs, the flooding is even more catastrophic. And unfortunately, many these folks have a long recovery still ahead.
