Food Drive

Be sure to bring a donation to the festival each day for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Every year we collect thousands of pounds of non-perishable food from attendees and donate it to the NC Food Bank. Last year we collected food and cash worth 5,700 meals, equivalent to over three and half tons of food. Lets do even better this year! 

No Glass Please!
Pop-top items and microwavable cups preferred

Most needed items: 

Cash: Your dollars will buy fuel for their trucks and more.  Also, they can often buy more food with your dollars than you could, anyway. It's also easier for us to manage since folding money weighs a lot less than beans.
