It all started in 2008 when a small group of concerned women discovered that children in their school were going hungry on weekends. These parents decided to take action and NourishNC was born. They funded a backpack program for 20 children at Carolina Beach Elementary School. News of the success spread quickly and we expanded to a middle school in 2009. With widespread interest in the program, NourishNC took the steps to become a 501(c)3 non-profit in 2010.
