Help Us Bring A Meal To Local Families

“Extension At The Table” Food Drive

March 21-26, 2022 marks the 36th annual Small Farms Week, presented by Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T. Small Farms Week is a statewide event that recognizes the contributions of small farmers in all of our counties.

The North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Vance County Center in association with N. C. A&T State University is once again hosting a food drive until March 11, 2022, in honor of our local farmers in conjunction with Small Farms Week (March 21–26, 2022). This year the format is slightly different. Instead of a general collection of canned goods and nonperishables, county staff will collect nonperishable ingredients for a family meal. Each Extension office will be putting together meals bags for up to 10 families of four to five people. The Vance County center office will be collecting items for Salmon Burgers and Sweet Potato Oven Fries. Please see the flyer for ingredients needed to fill our meal bags.

Extension At The Table Food Drive

All food collected through the food drive will be donated to ACTS (Area Christians Together in Service). Anyone interested in donating to this food drive can bring items to the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, Vance County Center office at 305 Young Street in Henderson.

For more information, please call 252-438-8188 or contact Nitasha Kearney, EFNEP Educator at or Wayne Rowland at

Thank you in advance for donating to those in hunger in Vance County.
