Coastal Carrier Feeds Families in Eastern North Carolina over Thanksgiving

December 7, 2020

Across our entire network, movers, partners, and individuals have all stepped up to fight the growing hunger crisis in this country. Coastal Carrier Moving & Storage held not 1 but 2 food drives in 2020. 

The first took place in May and brought in 500 lbs of food (417 meals) which was donated to the Help Center of Federal Point, a food bank in Carolina Beach, North Carolina near Wilmington. 

Their second food drive, a Thanksgiving Food Drive, was even bigger. Held in the parking lot of Henry’s Restaurant in Wilmington, NC, residents attempted to fill one of their trucks full of food. Coastal Carrier sure got close by collecting over 900 pounds of food (750 meals). They transported the food themselves to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina - Greenville Branch. 

Eastern North Carolina is one of the worst parts of the country for food insecurity. On average, 1 in 6 and sometimes even 1 in 5 people are going hungry along the eastern seaboard. 

Thanks to Coastal Carrier’s efforts, a few more people had something to eat over the holidays. Do you want to help out? Host a food drive in your area or sign up for our mover network
