• 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 two week's worth of 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 food-insecure children. 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 1,200+ children we serve with nutritious meals, milk, juice, healthy snacks, frozen proteins (turkey, chicken, etc), bread, eggs, and loads of fresh produce for their entire break! In addition, our children and families can now have the option to choose the foods that are right for them by shopping in our Market on Market. It costs NourishNC $250 to feed each of the 1,200+ 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.

  • Accelerate your impact by donating a weekend Backpack and Accellacare will donate one too! Our friends at Accellacare (formerly PMG-Research) are at it again! They are helping match all Backpack donations - up to 1,250 Backpacks!! Will you fill a kid's Backpack (and belly) this weekend and help us get the full match from Accellacare? You can 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.
