Food Distribution Assistance Programs

The N.C. General Assembly appropriated $10 million to Golden LEAF for food distribution assistance programs. 

These programs are funded by federal State Fiscal Recovery Funds through the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

Funds may be used for the following: 

  • Awards to nonprofit organizations to assist them in becoming eligible to be partner agencies 
  • Awards to current partner agencies to enhance or expand capacity
  • Awards to nonprofit organizations to establish, enhance, or expand school-based weekend food assistance programs

Golden LEAF staff are working to develop the programs. At this time, we anticipate opening an application process in early fall 2022.
