Millions of Carolinians lack sufficient nutritious, fresh food, while many farmers and packers often have surplus food that could help feed our neighbors in need. Our Farm to Food Bank Initiative partners our food banks with growers across the state to rescue and deliver perfectly healthy but unmarketable produce to these hungry families.

Feeding the Carolinas has a Farm to Food Bank Director who is out in the fields, meeting with growers to build relationships and obtain donations of fresh produce.  We welcome donations of produce that are “perfectly imperfect” but can still help a local food bank feed the hungry. These are typically what are called "#2’s" that will not meet the farmer’s customer requirements - they may not be as pretty as retailers want, but perfectly fresh and edible.

We accept donations of produce that are distressed, blemished, misshapen, unsalable, test products or excess produce.  Last year we sourced over 20 million pounds of fresh produce for our food banks to distribute to those in need across the Carolinas.

Your gift of support goes directly to helping us provide fresh produce to our network.
