  • 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!).

  • 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!
