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.

News & Notes

November is often associated with a time of giving thanks, and this year is no different. In order to get the most out of the month, we’re deeming this as the year to start early. Make the entire month about showing gratitude to those you love, and even strangers.

The spooky season is coming to an end before we know it, but that doesn’t mean we’re over October. Scary doesn’t always have to be bad. Instead, use these final weeks as a reminder to do some scary-good deeds and give back to your community.

In order to lead a truly altruistic life, it’s important to take stock of your own mental health, as well as those around you. There are a ton of free resources and tactics you can use to check-in and improve your mental clarity.

Thank you 1st Annual Outer Banks Rum Festival Sponsors!
