What We Do

The mission of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina is twofold first, to feed hungry people by soliciting and distributing food and other household products through partner agencies and second, to educate people in the community about the nature of and solutions to the problems of hunger. In 2019-2020 Second Harvest provided over 80 million pounds of food and grocery items through a network of over 800 non-profit partner agencies including emergency pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, veterans services agencies, and animal shelters. We are changing the world by providing healthy, nutritious food for people who would otherwise go hungry.



Our volunteers are instrumental to food distribution in our 24-county service region. Our 800+ agency partners rely on us to be sure that the children, seniors, families, veterans, and pets that they serve have access to healthy foods. As a safety precaution, we are asking volunteers and staff to stay at home if they experience any symptoms of illness, or if they have traveled to high-risk locations within the last 30 days.

At this time, volunteer sessions are planned to run as scheduled, however, due to many company policies during the virus outbreak, quite a few of regular groups have had to cancel their shifts. We are in desperate need of volunteers to help fill those shifts. The Food Bank is taking every safety precaution for our volunteers and staff including:
