Rise Against Hunger Eastern North Carolina was founded in 2007 and serves most of Eastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina. In 2019, more than 7,400 local volunteers and partnering organizations, including First Presbyterian Church in Fayetteville, Bethany Free Will Baptist Church in Winterville and the Epiphany School of Global Studies in New Bern, have helped build the local movement to end global hunger. In this region alone, through 2019, about 15.5 million meals have been packaged to benefit 23 countries around the globe.

Rotarians Respond to Dorian

Several Rotary districts in Eastern North Carolina are coming together to package 100,000 meals in response to the devastation that Hurricane Dorian brought upon the Bahamas. The events took place on September 28 in the Jacksonville area, and in the Southport area on October 5. We appreciate these Rotarians for stepping in to help in the face of crisis!
