• 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.
  • The NSEA Swim community is helping give back to the food insecure kids of New Hanover County, including the 53 children on the Backpack Program at D.C. Virgo! This Thanksgiving, NourishNC is 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! Our “Take & Bake” dinner includes everything a family needs to make a full Thanksgiving dinner together, plus the dignity to have it in their own home. This year they receive a 14 pound bird, sweet potatoes, fresh green beans, carrots, apples. stuffing mix, mashed potatoes, gravy, applesauce, cornbread mix, recipes, a stick of butter, and a pan to cook it all in!!! On the Monday after Thanksgiving at school, when someone asks, “What did you do for Thanksgiving”, all of our kids will answer “ I had an awesome dinner with my family”!!! Thank you for making this possible.
  • Kids love ravioli.
  • 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.
  • 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 1,300 kids on our BackPack Program the gift of a Happy, Healthy Holiday season! This grocery box provides three nutritious meals a day, snacks, milk, fresh produce, a loaf of bread, and meat for the entire holiday break! It also comes with great recipes for the kids to try! This year, we'll also be providing extras like STEM kits, socks, and holiday stockings provided by Live Oak Bank!
  • This Thanksgiving we are once again providing every child on our program with a delicious and healthy 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. Your $25 donation will provide a child and their family with a nutritious Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings! “Take and Bake” Menu: a 12-pound turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cream of mushroom soup, cornbread mix, apple sauce, carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes, collards, and apples for a dessert dish. All items will be packed in a foil pan and come with recipes.
  • Each month, NourishNC has been sending literal TONS of food to children and families displaced from their homes and living in hotel rooms! Each shipment is organized to accommodate the specific cooking equipment that these children and families have in their hotel room. This is just one of the ways we are working on our vision to be anywhere and everywhere hungry kids need us! Hunger Hero Dr. David has sponsored this month's shipment. Will you help him meet his goal to raise enough funding to cover the next month? Donate in any amount! Thank you!
  • 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.
