Good Shepherd Center - Soup Kitchen
Wilmington, NC 28401
Details: Good Shepherd Center began as a modest Soup Kitchen in 1983, when a group of downtown residents banded together to serve the homeless a lunch of soup and a sandwich. From this small beginning, the program has grown to include a weekday breakfast and lunch available to anyone in need of food, as well as a dinner meal 7 nights a week for guests of the Night Shelter. Today, the Soup Kitchen feeds as many as 100 hungry men, women and children at breakfast, another 150 at lunch, and another 70 at dinner. All told, we now provide more than 70,000 hot meals to the hungry each year. Lunch is the largest and most substantial meal of the day. Because our low-income and homeless guests typically have compromised health and limited access to healthy foods, we strive to make our offerings as nutritious as possible. Using donated food, our volunteers prepare a meat, starch, cooked vegetables, and fresh salads for each lunchtime meal. Who has access to the Soup Kitchen? Homeless and low-income individuals, as well as working families who, once they have paid for their rent, utilities, and other expenses, have little or nothing left to put food on the table for their children. A number of mothers come to the Soup Kitchen because they are skipping meals at home to make sure that there is enough for the children - getting a substantial meal here helps them through to the next day.

UMBC - Abundant Giving Food Ministry
Wilmington, NC 28405
Details: The Abundant Giving Food Ministry was birthed on November 21, 2014 here at Union Missionary Baptist Church. Our partnership with the Wilmington Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina allows us to be a direct distribution agency. We have been given he opportunity to make a powerful statement in our community..."WE CARE"! Our program is for EVERYONE. We distribute fresh produce to the community at no cost to those receiving it. We currently provide fresh fruits and vegetables which promote a healthier lifestyle for all God's people on the third Friday of each month from 5:00pm to 7:00pm or while supplies last. Occasionally we provide meats and bakery/bread items. Our goal is to be a help to those in need of food. Our program is not just for the homeless and the jobless. We will supply food for the hard working families that represent the backbone of our community. Many live paycheck to paycheck and they earn just enough NOT to qualify for government food assistance. Thank you to our many volunteers unload, setup and sort the food items, hand out food during the distribution, help participants carry food to their cars, clean-up afterwards and most importantly they smile and have fun.
