Thank you for wanting to help in the fight against hunger in our community! SHFB distributes 70 million pounds of food to our 800 non-profit agencies thru-out 14 counties in NC and 10 counties in SC. More than 80,000 volunteers are needed each year to help us inspect and sort food and grocery items so that it can be sent to our partner agencies including Soup Kitchens, Emergency Pantries, Homeless Shelters and Low-Income Daycare Centers. We could never provide all that we do to our agencies that feed our neighbors in need without our amazing volunteers!
