About Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC
Second Harvest Food Bank is a leading agent and advocate for a healthy, hunger-free Northwest NC.
We work to ensure that every neighbor can access healthy food when they need it and to address root causes of poverty, which drive the need for basic needs services.
We recognize hunger in our communities for what it is, the unacceptable symptom or poverty and entwined challenges impacting the health and well-being of individuals and our collective future.
We recognize the power of food, a fundamental human need we all share, to unite and drive us beyond food for today toward more lasting solutions—a healthy, hunger-free tomorrow for everyone.
