Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina

Did You know?

In addition to providing food to over 800 non-profit partner agencies, SHMETROLINA directly serves our hungry neighbors. 14.9% of our service area population, over 553,000 people, live in poverty including almost 182,000 children and almost 48,000 seniors.

We are so grateful for your interest in hosting a Fund Drive! 

Funds are our greatest need and a wonderful way to multiply your giving! We are able to provide 7 pounds of food into the community for every $1 donated! Funds enable us to purchase products by the pallet - securing much-needed items at great pricing – and help keep our refrigerated trucks on the road picking up and distributing fresh produce, dairy and meats to our partner agencies.

Based on the increasing need in our area due to COVID-19, we have raised our goal to $400,000 to help us assist more neighbors. With your support, we will be able to continue putting food on the plates of families whose children are missing school meals, seniors who are being asked to stay safely in their homes, and hardworking individuals impacted by decreases in work hours or layoffs. For an update on our COVID-19 outreach, please click here for a video from our CEO, Kay Carter.
