The Backpack Buddies program is a cooperative effort between the faith-based community in Pasquotank County and the Elizabeth City-Pasquotank County School System. We obtain food from the Food Bank, sort the food into plastic bags which are placed into tubs. Backpack Buddies packs a months worth of meals for 150 students. The meal bags are then picked up by the school social workers or by parents at a scheduled time.
Please reach out to the office for specific dates and times if you would like to serve your community in this way.
Serving Others in Unity and Love is a cooperative effort among the churches in Pasquotank County to provide meals for the hungry. An evening meal is served at the old Elizabeth City Middle School Monday - Saturday at 5:30 pm. Meals are served outside while socially distancing with safety in mind. There are no requirements to receive a meal and no questions are asked of those who participate. You can help by donating prepared food, serving food or with a financial contribution.
Cann Memorial hosts the meal on the 4th Wednesday
of each month, serving between 50-75 people at each meal.
