Samaritan Kitchen of Wilkes

Food pantry feeding the hungry in Wilkes County NC


project backpack food drive

We started our fall drive to raise funds for the 750 backpacks a week that we need to provide. We're at $19,574 as of August 22,2019. Won't you help? Let's break that $24,000 goal!

What we do

Project Backpack


Hungry children get free lunches on school days, but what about the weekend? Caring teachers and school counselors identify children who are food insecure and volunteers pack 7 meals into bags that go in each child's backpack each weekend.

Food Pantry


There are 10,000 people in Wilkes County North Carolina that are food insecure. We collect donated food from local grocers, restaurants and gardeners Monday through Saturday and give people in need 60 pounds of groceries each month. 



You could buy this box of crackers for $3 and donate it to Samaritan Kitchen. Or, you could donate $3 to Samaritan Kitchen and with our partner agency Second Harvest, we could purchase all you see abovet the Food Pantry title to the left.
