Read more about the Hunger studies done every four years. The studies provide information on the demographics profiles of emergency food clients and the nature and effectiveness of local agencies in meeting their food security needs.

Hunger in America 2010
The Hunger in America 2010 study is the first research study to capture the significant connection between the economic downturn and an increased need for emergency food assistance. Feeding America collected quantitative and qualitative feedback from 61,000 face-to-face in-depth interviews with people seeking emergency food assistance and more than 37,000 agency surveys, making this study the largest, most-comprehensive ever conducted on domestic hunger. This report specifically addresses hunger in the service territory of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. View the Hunger in America 2010 full report.(pdf)

Hunger in America 2006
An update of the Hunger Study in 2001, this report involves more than 52,000 face-to-face interviews with clients who sought emergency help through America’s Second Harvest (now Feeding America) network of more than 200 food banks and member agencies. This study was completed following the devastating hurricanes of Katrina, Rita and Wilma. The study specifically addresses hunger in the service territory of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina as well as national hunger issues.

Halloween is Tomorrow and @Remax is our Featured Tweet of the Day!


Congrats to @Remax for giving us tips to make our House the scariest on the block!

Lighting and music are crucial. You can do more with simple lighting and eerie music than with expensive props. I’ve had children refuse to step on my porch simply because of my Halloween soundtrack and lights arranged to create a bizarre effect.

If you are going out with the kids bundle up, have fun and don’t eat all of your kids candy while they are sleeping. Happy Halloween!

@JScottGraves thanks Phil for closing so fast

There is so much going on this weekend between the Parade of Homes event and the NC State Fair.The State Fair is a tradition that families in North Carolina seem to go to every year. It’s just something about the carnival atomposhere and Krispy Kreme Donut Burgers that makes one think how can we miss such an event?

Thank you to @WorkTriangleNC for tweeting the fantastic photo of our age old tradition here in North Carolina.
