• 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!
  • Give over 1,100 kids on our BackPack Program the gift of a Happy, Healthy Holiday Break from school! This grocery box provides three nutritious meals a day and snacks with pantry staples like cereal, milk, pasta & pasta sauce, soups, ravioli, mac & cheese, canned veggies, and more PLUS fresh produce, a loaf of bread, and meat for the entire holiday break! This year, we're excited to offer our families cookie kits as well so that they can enjoy the holiday tradition of cookie making and decorating!
  • 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!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You can give the gift of a full belly in honor of someone else! You can feed hungry kids right here in our community in honor of a person in your life, as a birthday gift, or in memory of someone important to you.
