  • 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.

  • Feed A Child Over Summer Break

    Suggested Donation: $35.00
    Summer Break is no picnic for the children served by our Backpack Program. 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 1,000+ children we serve with 3 nutritious meals a day, milk, juice, healthy snacks, frozen turkey, bread, and fresh produce. It costs NourishNC $135 to feed each of the 1,000+ kids on the BackPack Program. Your donation of any amount will help provide nearly 200,000 meals for our community’s most vulnerable children.
  • You may donate any amount for the St. Mark Catholic School Lenten service Project!
