Bi-Weekly Packs

Participate in packing bags weekly on Wednesday evenings.  There is a group of 10-15 volunteers signed up to pack all the needed bags.  This is an excellent volunteer opportunity for all ages. There are opportunities each month for individuals to sign up for an “open” pack as there are opportunities for large groups to sign up for a dedicated night.

Weekly Drivers

Participate in delivering bags to schools we serve every Friday. Volunteers are needed to pick up the bags from the pantry at 9:30 a.m. and then deliver them to the dedicated school that morning.

Monthly Pantry Stock

Help stock the pantry each month from the significant donation of food from the Food Bank of NC.  This typically takes place during the day.

North East Wake Backpack Buddies | Get Involved | Individual | Neighborhood Pack


Want an easy way to get your neighbors involved in giving food to hungry children? 

Organize a neighborhood pack. Block parties, neighborhood gatherings, and yard sales are great ways to make giving simple.   It is easy.  We provide the menu and instructions, send an event representative to your location if requested, and assist with logistics for transporting the food to our location.  You purchase the food needed and gather the neighbors to pack the bags.

North East Wake Backpack Buddies | Get Involved | Individual | Event Representative


We are engaged at many local events.  As an event representative, you may work with sponsoring groups, tell our story at the event, coordinate receipt of donations, or answer questions about the event activities.

This role is great for someone who likes coordinating activities, is detailed oriented, and enjoys meeting new people.
