• A Farmer's MarKID event!
  • By making this donation, we’ll be able to provide a child with weekend bags for an entire year and feed them during all school breaks! THAT's what it means to be a TRUE Hunger Hero! This is an incredible gift and one that has the power to change the course of a child’s life for the better. Each weekend bag includes 7-8 meals, snacks, and fresh produce. "Break boxes" include 3 meals a day, snacks, and fresh produce. Examples of food that we provide in the Weekend Bag are:
    • fresh produce
    • canned tuna or chicken
    • canned pasta with meat
    • peanut butter
    • individual fruit cups or apple sauce
    • mac & cheese
    • shelf-stable cheese
    • granola bars
    • cereal boxes and/or bars
    • individual packs of crackers
    • dried fruit & nut mixes
    • soups/stews
    • chili with beans
    • individual milk/juice
    • single-serve instant oatmeal
  • 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.
  • We love fruits and veggies and we want our kiddos to also! Help us provide our children with healthy nudges by providing them fresh fruit and hearty vegetables every weekend and during all school breaks. Produce is paired with recipe ideas and simple sides like individual servings of honey, peanut butter, or ranch dressing.

  • In 2019, NourishNC launched its Food Farmacy Program with the recognition that "Food Is Medicine". Doctors and Nurses at the Nunnelee Pediatric Speciality Clinic and Coastal Family Medicine ask two additional questions during children's screenings. If a child identifies as food insecure, they leave their appointment with a box of pantry staples and also receive a "prescription" for fruit, veggies, meat, eggs, and bread! The boxes also contain a guide about additional food resources in their county.

  • Canned tuna is a staple for the kids we feed.
  • Many children in New Hanover County have still not returned to their school buildings for in-person learning since March 14th; some attend only two days a week. NourishNC has been providing our kids with groceries to keep their bellies full and keep their brains firing on all cylinders while they learn from home. For just $25, you can help keep these kids fed by sponsoring a WEEK's worth of healthy meals, snacks, produce, meat, and bread for a child in our area (a $35 value!). Each child receives their groceries twice a month through our no-contact drive-thru where they are also provided additional resources like face masks, school supplies, books, sporting equipment, and so much more.

  • Kids love ravioli.
  • Apple sauce and fruit cups are something we all used to look forward to as a kid.
  • 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.
