North Carolina has one of the highest rates of food insecurity in the nation. More than 600,000 residents experience hunger on a daily basis. One impact of the pandemic is that hunger rates have continued to increase dramatically. In Wake County alone, food insecurity is nearly 14% higher than the national average.

Your donations support the following ministries:

Food Pantry

Hope’s Food Pantry, located at the Raleigh campus is a place where
people needing food assistance are welcomed, prayed for, and given the opportunity to shop for items that they need. The pantry meets nutritional needs of the community, but it’s about so much more. Those who come to the pantry leave knowing that they are loved and cared for.

BackPack Buddies

Children from food-insecure homes rely on school meals during the week to meet their nutritional needs. On weekends or holidays when they are not in school, many will go hungry. The BackPack Buddies ministry fills backpacks full of donated food items and drops them off at partner schools to be sent home with these kids on weekends to ensure their
nutritional needs are being met.

Galley Grocery

A food desert is an urban area where there is little access to fresh food. Galley Grocery was established to provide healthy foods at low cost in the middle of a food desert in Southeast Raleigh. Galley Grocery is a Ship Community Outreach Initiative and is subsidized by local churches.
