• Show that Eagle Nation Pride and help give back to the food insecure kids of New Hanover County, including the 15 children on the Backpack program at Noble Middle School! This Thanksgiving we are once again providing every child on our Backpack Program with a delicious and healthy Take-and-Bake Thanksgiving dinner for their family! Enjoying a meal with loved ones makes for the best kind of eating and our community’s children deserve the best. For just $25, your donation will provide a child and their family with a nutritious Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings! The Take-and-Bake Menu includes a 12-pound turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cream of mushroom soup, green beans, cornbread mix, apple sauce, apples, sweet potatoes, onions, and carrots. All items will be packed in a foil pan and come with recipes for the family to prepare together!
  • 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

    • single-serve instant oatmeal
  • 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.
  • Thank you for honoring Alex's memory by helping NourishNC feed hungry children in New Hanover County.
  • When you think of Mac & Cheese from the blue box, you’re instantly flashed back to childhood. The same can be said for Apple Sauce!

  • Apple sauce and fruit cups are something we all used to look forward to as a kid.
  • The Market on Market (The MOM) is NourishNC's newest way to provide supplemental food assistance to food insecure children in New Hanover County! Children and families can now "shop" for the free groceries that are right for them! This "client-choice" model allows us to empower families to choose the food that fits their children's tastes, their dietary needs, and provide culturally-specific food items. Help us stock the shelves, the coolers, the freezers, AND the produce shelves by making a contribution today! The MOM helps us maximize your donation by reducing waste and allows families to select the foods they will use and leave the rest for the others!
