Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts

Charlotte and the immediately surrounding areas are very fortunate because we are seldom directly hit by hurricanes. This makes us the perfect location to stockpile water, ready-to-eat foods, batteries, flashlights and cleaning supplies to assist our neighboring food banks along the coasts of North and South Carolina.

Prior to Hurricane Florence making landfall, Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina dispatched 3 tractor trail loads (50,000 pounds) of food and water to staging areas near the locations that were projected to have impact.  In the weeks following the storm, we will be making an additional drop to areas near the most devastated locations in Wilmington and Fayetteville, NC.  We are there for our partner food banks and are ready to assist during their time of recovery.

We are prepared to assist our partner agencies in the 19 counties we serve including emergency pantries, shelters, disaster relief organizations like the Red Cross and our animal rescues and shelters.  We will continue to help our partner food banks with whatever they need for as long as it takes.


    • Donate funds that will be directly used for acquiring most needed disaster relief items

  • Donate most needed items to Second Harvest where they will be used in places of greatest need. Consider donating:

- Water
- Cereal Bars
- Fruit Cups
- Peanut Butter
- Pop Top Cans
- Tuna

Your support throughout disaster relief efforts provides essential food and supplies for our hungry neighbors. Together, we can help people in their greatest time of need. Once disaster relief and recovery needs have been met, remaining funds and food will be used to support our ongoing hunger-relief efforts.
