WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — NourishNC is excited to announce the start of construction on their new 12,000 square foot facility at 3606 Market Street in Wilmington.
This custom-designed facility will allow NourishNC to provide nutritious food to more children as efficiently as possible.

The new home will triple fresh and frozen food storage and also double perishable storage in support of NourishNC’s programs that fight childhood hunger. In addition, the new facility will contain a “shopping area” where children and their families can choose the foods that are best for them.
NourishNC’s new shopping area provides families with a dignified way to shop together and choose the food they need the most. It also allows NourishNC to offer more culturally specific food items so that all members of our community have access to the food they love.
NourishNC’s current leased facility is too small, lacks enough food storage, and their lease is up soon. They are literally running out of space and time.
NourishNC is a 510(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to “provide healthy food to hungry children, empowering them to succeed in the classroom and in their community.” Their goal is to enhance children’s health and well-being by preventing the disastrous consequences of child hunger.
