Pitt County has 38,019 people at risk for hunger, according to U.S. Census data. More than 10,000 are children younger than 17.

Fortunately, there is a group that can take one dollar and generate $10 worth of food, enough to make five meals.


The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina has distributed food to the hungry in 10 eastern North Carolina counties out of a warehouse on West Ninth Street since 1999.
