Be a member of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina’s SPRING 2014 Class of Speakers Bureau Ambassadors!
Create a ripple effect in the community to benefit the fight against hunger. Speakers’ Bureau Ambassadors allow the Food Bank to reach larger audiences and share information about FBCENC, hunger issues and the many ways that people like you can get involved in fighting hunger and its root causes.
The work of the Speakers’ Bureau Ambassadors is incredibly important, since the Food Bank of CENC has limited staff time.
JOIN OUR SPEAKERS BUREAU!
Our Ambassadors are on the forefront, inspiring thousands of people to take vital steps to help end hunger in our 34 counties through the following avenues:
Volunteers engage the community, educate people about hunger issues and the crucial services FBCENC provides all while inspiring people at places of worship, schools, and businesses to take action and give funds, food, time and/or voice.
Volunteers advocate for FBCENC at a variety of different events, from volunteer fairs at workplaces, to resource fairs in low income communities, to food drives at grocery stores, sporting events, you name it!
As a tour guide, your job will involve introducing visitors to the Food Bank by providing a behind-the-scenes opportunity to view the day to day operations of the oldest and largest food bank in the state of N.C.

When & Where
Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC
Established in 1980, the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina is a non-profit organization that provides food to people at risk of hunger in 34 counties in central and eastern North Carolina through 800 partner agencies including soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and after school programs for children.
Sadly, hunger remains a serious problem in central and eastern North Carolina. Over 500,000 people in the Food Bank's 34-county service area struggle each day. Nearly 34 percent of the people served by the Food Bank’s network are children, and another 11 percent are elderly. Thirty-eight percent of the families served are the “working poor” – people who work hard and still have to choose between eating and other basic necessities such as medicine and housing.
The Food Bank operates 6 branch warehouses: a primary facility in Raleigh and warehouses in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Wilmington and Southern Pines.
