Over 1.6 million individuals in North Carolina face food insecurity, lacking consistent access to affordable, nourishing food.

Many of our neighbors reside in food deserts, where acquiring quality fresh food is a challenge. At the YMCA, we’re dedicated to closing this gap and enhancing community access. Our initiatives, such as the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), play a pivotal role. Through CACFP, we provide wholesome meals at various afterschool care sites in Onslow County. During Summers, when school meals aren’t available, SFSP steps in, offering nutritious meals across multiple Onslow County locations.
