Who We Are & What We Do

Carolina Cares Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of all people with food insecurity living in Wake County and the surrounding communities in North Carolina regardless of race, religion, background or sexual orientation. 

Our vision is a world where resources are shared with those in need, waste is reduced, and all families and community members can live with independence and dignity without hunger.


Carolina Cares is not affiliated with any churches or religious organizations.

Carolina Cares provides and connects people with resources such as food, clothing, and information for additional services. The organization is managed by a small group of volunteers and aided by a community of people who care about others and want to help their neighbors.

Over 300 households per month receive assistance from Carolina Cares to battle food insecurity. In 2020 Carolina Cares helped with Christmas gifts for 400 children.

Carolina Cares is 100% volunteer operated, relies 100% on donations, and is not funded by any other institutions.  

Carolina Cares does not distribute money for any reason.  We are not able to assist with rent, shelter, utility payments, medical issues, childcare, transportation, medications, or hotel rooms.
