The Food Bank says it has heard from Eastern Carolinians that inflation and gas prices are leading more people to be food insecure.

Anyone who is able to donate is asked to provide canned fruits, veggies, meat, beans and soup, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, hygiene items, household items, and paper products, as the Food Bank says they are the most important.

More information on how you can donate now can be found here. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can generally provide 5 meals.
