  • The DPS Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and is working with other nonprofit and business partners to provide family meals on Fridays and Saturdays. Go to for more information.

  • No Kid Hungry North Carolina has a list of drive-thru or pick-up sites with meals for children at Families can also text “FOODNC” (or “COMIDA” in Spanish) to 877-877 for the closest three sites to their location.

  • The NC Department of Health and Human Services has increased benefits to families receiving Food and Nutrition Services through the end of April. All families will receive the maximum amount allowed for their household size.
