How To Help

At NourishNC we work with over 50 schools in the Wilmington area providing food to children who are left without guaranteed school meals on weekends or breaks. That being said, we go through a lot of food! Food drives are the #1 way we’re able to continue our mission and provide food to our community. If you are interested in donating food to NourishNC, you can host a food drive in your business, neighborhood, or community networks, and drop off the collected items at our Warehouse. You can collect items from the Wish List, or focus specifically on 1-5 items. We find that goal-oriented, fun, and culturally relevant food drives are the most successful! Get creative! Below are items that we can’t seem to get enough of:

  • Grains: Cereal, Clif or Kind Bars, and Pasta

  • Fruits & Veggies: Canned Fruit & Vegetables, Individual Citrus & Juice & Applesauce Cups, Jelly, and Pasta Sauce

  • Proteins: Beef & Hearty Soups, Peanut Butter, Chicken, Tuna, and Beans

  • Dry Goods: Mac & Cheese, Dried Fruit, Go Go Yogurtz, and Pudding Cups
