ELIZABETH CITY, NC – Food Bank of the Albemarle receives a $1,035 contribution from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.

The Food Bank of the Albemarle is a non-profit organization working to eliminate hunger through nutritious food distribution, education and advocacy in cooperation with the community.  The Food Bank acts as a clearing house for the collection and distribution of food and grocery items to non-profit, faith-based organizations for their food programs and to eligible individuals for their food needs.

Currently, the Food Bank supports over 130 different member programs including food pantries, soup kitchens, day care centers, juvenile and senior citizen residential programs, and shelters throughout 15 counties in Northeastern North Carolina. These agencies either pick up food from our warehouse in Elizabeth City, NC or it is delivered to them for distribution to the hungry men, women, and children in their communities.

The Food Bank of the Albemarle combines many services under one umbrella to maximize the effectiveness of staff, equipment and facilities.  Every day the Food Bank explores new resources and new ways to reach the estimated 17%, one in four individuals, in northeast North Carolina who live at or below the poverty level and are hungry.

The vision of the Food Bank is that one day their communities will be hunger free.  This vision will be accomplished by being committed to providing direct assistance, support, services, advocacy and education to individuals and non-profit agencies to alleviate hunger and poverty while being good stewards of the gifts entrusted to them.

“Thank you for you generous donation in support of the Food Bank of the Albemarle. Your gift will be put to work immediately – right here at home – in the fight against hunger and poverty in northeast North Carolina,” said Liz Reasoner, Executive Director of Food Bank of the Albemarle.
