1 in 6 people in our community face hunger.

5 in 6 can help.

Volunteers play a vital, hands-on role helping to provide urgently needed food assistance to children, families and seniors in need across northwest NC.

Whether you're on your own or part of a group, have two hours a month or two hours each week, you can make a difference in the lives your neighbors through the gift of your time.

Here are just a few of the ways you can help:

- Sort and repackage donated food
- Inspect donated eggs
- Assist with office mailings
- Make thank you calls (no soliciting)
- Support annual food drives and fundraisers
- Organize a food drive or fundraiser

Helpful things to know:
