With the holidays just around the corner, non-profits like the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina are ramping up efforts to make sure that no one goes hungry this season. However, another local organization is making sure that our four-legged friends don’t go without food either. The Pet Food Pantry of Eastern North Carolina is like a food bank for pets and is based in Greenville. The Pet Food Pantry is an all-volunteer 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free pet food through donations to families facing financial hardship in Pitt County and surrounding areas.

Second Helping - Holden Beach

When vacationers leave the beach, they often end up throwing away unused food.  But a program that started last month called Second Helping collects unwanted food and donates it to local food pantries. 

It’s peak time for vacation season at the beach. And now a new program is collecting leftover food from vacationers as they exit the Crystal Coast. Mikel Peterson has more.

Just in time for Easter, Eddy Browning shares an authentic southern recipe that you may never heard of.
