We Seek to End Hunger
Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina (SHFBM) strives through education, advocacy, and partnerships to eliminate hunger by the solicitation and distribution of food. We provide a regional distribution warehouse and branches that supply food and grocery items to charitable agencies that assist people in need.

Ending Child Hunger
Children at risk of hunger in the Metrolina region is not just a myth, it’s a reality. 17% of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina’s service area population lives in poverty, including almost 209,000 children and seniors.

Children at the greatest risk of hunger are those who are in deep, persistent poverty. Second Harvest has several initiatives to help serve these children. Please take a moment to learn about Child Hunger in the Metrolina region and join us in the fight to provide one of their basic needs.

PGWC Volunteers sorting Food

SHFBM is the largest hunger fighting agency in 19 counties of North and South Carolina. Last year, we distributed over 38 million pounds of food and grocery items to individuals in need through our almost 600 partner agencies. We could not do what we do without volunteers! Volunteers help us sort, inspect and pack food and other items for distribution to people at risk of hunger. Last year almost 30,000 volunteers donated over 90,000 hours and there was still work to be done!
