Where can I donate food?

Si Cantwell

We’re glad you asked.

The Help Center of Federal Point operates a food pantry for the needy at the Carolina Beach Parks & Recreation Center, 1121 N. Lake Park Blvd.

It takes canned foods, dry goods and almost anything else, according to Laurie Taylor, executive director of the Help Center.

Donations can be dropped off 10 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday at the center. That’s when the Help Center operates. Donors may be able to leave items after those hours at the center’s front desk, Taylor said.

More people are coming in this year, so donations would be welcomed.

“We’re having to buy a lot compared to what we used to have to buy, because there’s such a high demand,” Taylor said.

Here are some other places you can donate food. Call the numbers listed to find out when to drop by.

Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, Wilmington branch, 1314 Marstellar St., 251-1465
