Our Agencies Can Help

You are not alone if you are struggling to provide nutritious food for yourself or your household.  Many agencies and organizations are ready to help, but it is really important that you apply for and use food stamps if you are eligible.  If you are not receiving food stamps, find out if you are eligible by visiting your county's Department of Social Services or check out the www.fns4nc.org website.  But, there is more.  Agencies partner with the Food Bank of the Albemarle to provide emergency food.
