  • Provide a child with 8 meals, snacks, juice or milk, and fresh produce for a weekend! Each bag is strategically packed with kid-approved, dietician-reviewed meals, and snacks. The bag is black so other children cannot see what is inside and it is placed in the child's backpack while they are out of the classroom. Many kids themselves do not realize they are on the Backpack Program, let alone their classmates.

  • Alpha Xi Delta Kindly Hearts Campaign

    Suggested Donation: $20.00
    Alpha Xi Delta’s Kindly Hearts Campaign is a year-long campaign focused on service and fundraising to support our communities in some areas most directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As much of the U.S. and the world continues to cope with, and seek to recover from, the COVID-19 pandemic, Alpha Xi Delta is galvanizing our membership around this shared experience and deploying our time, talents, and treasures to serve our local communities that are in need. To support the Kindly Hearts Campaign, our chapter has chosen to focus on food insecurity and supporting local students. By supporting NourishNC, a local nonprofit whose mission is to, “Provide healthy food to hungry children, empowering them to succeed in the classroom and in their community,” our chapter helps in both of those areas. Join our chapter in our fundraising efforts by donating to NourishNC through Alpha Xi Delta’s national Letters of Love fundraiser lasting through the month of November. You may donate any amount and every dollar counts!
  • Our mobile “Farmers MarKID” is a direct and hands on approach to improving the health of children in our community. We take free fresh fruits and vegetables to wherever kids need us: food deserts, parks, playgrounds, after school programs, high need schools, and other nonprofits. At the MarKID children receive “Nourish Bucks” and “shop” for produce just like you would at a regular farmer’s market. In front of each produce item is kid friendly information on why it is healthy and good for you. The MarKID is designed to be transactional and educational for kids. It also designed so the family has something to cook in the home. After children have “paid” for their produce it is bagged up with a healthy recipe booklet for the parents to use in the home!

  • Summer Break is no picnic for food-insecure children during a "normal" year, but all the setbacks due to COVID-19 have exacerbated the needs of our community's kids. Most children count down the days to vacation, but chronically hungry kids may anxiously count the numbers of meals they’ll miss when school is out. NourishNC fights Summer Hunger by providing the 1,500+ children we serve with 3 nutritious meals a day, milk, juice, healthy snacks, frozen proteins (turkey, chicken, etc), bread, eggs, and fresh produce. It costs NourishNC $135 to feed each of the 1,500+ kids on the BackPack Program. Your donation of any amount will help provide full bellies all Summer long for our community’s most vulnerable children.
