Food Security Program

Food security means having enough food & knowing where your next meal is coming from. It means having access to nutritious and culturally relevant food. A family is food insecure when its members live in hunger or fear of hunger.

The Wake County Food Security Program is working to ensure that all residents in Wake County have access to affordable, nutritious and culturally relevant food. Our office partners with the community to share best practices, identify gaps in resources, and improve overall resource allocation and awareness of food resources. We are available to assist individuals with finding food resources and to consult with partners seeking to develop or improve on site food services at their organization.
