Our Mission

We exist to provide free groceries to individuals and families in our community who have been affected by a temporary crisis or emergency. We offer hope to the estimated 5,680 people in Dare County who are food insecure - 1,550 of whom are children. And, we offer our commitment - to every Dare County resident - that we will be prepared to do our part should our Outer Banks community ever be affected by a natural event. Learn more and get involved.

It’s hard to believe that the end of the year is approaching so quickly. Wasn’t it just 2020, after all? Time flies faster than you think, which is why it’s important to think about your end-of-year giving plan now. 

Life has been hard lately on us all, but September is National Self-Care Awareness Month. It’s a month dedicated to checking in with yourself, being kind to your inner monologue and truly making sure you get what you need to fill up your cup.

Thank you 1st Annual Outer Banks Rum Festival Sponsors!
