Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina at New Bern
The New Bern Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina serves 5 counties including Carteret, Craven, Jones, Onslow, and Pamlico. This area is also shared with the Greenville Branch. In these counties, more than 62,000 people live in food insecure households, more than a third of whom are children.
Yearly, the New Bern Branch distributes millions of pounds of food to our network of over 80 partner agencies in the local community. Our New Bern Branch also has its own community garden that provided 7,500 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to the local community last year.
For every dollar donated, the Food Bank can provide 5 meals to the New Bern community! Get involved today by making a donation, signing up to volunteer, or hosting a food drive!
