During the week of June 6–12, residents and visitors in northeast North Carolina and along the Outer Banks are able to take part in Food Bank of the Albemarle’s “Dine Out to Help Out” fundraising event. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Food Bank and will include participating restaurants across the Food Bank’s 15 county service area.

“We are excited to announce the return of ‘Dine Out’ event for 2022,” said Liz Reasoner, executive director of Food Bank of the Albemarle. “The funds raised through this hunger-relief initiative will provide nutritious food to thousands of people in need, and encourage patrons to thank their server and restaurant during the week of June 6th – 12th, for their support of Food Bank of the Albemarle through this incredible fundraising event.”

Funds raised through “Dine Out to Help Out” enable the Food Bank to continue providing nutritious meals across 15 counties in northeastern North Carolina. Many of the restaurants that participated in the launch over 25 years ago are still supporting the hunger-relief initiative to this day.
