Strategically placed in Downtown Wilson, the Hope Station is a hub of support for families in crisis through food, shelter, housing assistance, and financial assistance.
We marshall the resources of our local and state governments, corporate partners, churches and committed individuals to meet the needs of our neighbors.
20% of all Wilson County residents and 25% of children in Wilson County live in a household that is food insecure. That means they aren’t always sure where their next meal is going to come from and they don’t have regular access to nutritious food. (Source: Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina)
Our Pantry Helps Meet That Need
We serve around 600 people and 250 households through our food pantry each month. We rely on the donation of food by individuals, food drives and local food stores to keep our shelves stocked with healthy, nutritious food that is distributed 3 times a week.
