About Help Feast Down East Keep on Truckin'!

Feast Down East needs your help to repair our box truck, our primary vehicle for distributing fresh food within our community. The box truck is the most integral aspect of our organization as it is used to deliver our wholesale products to restaurants, grocery stores, schools, and other community-based organizations.

Our truck is in need of an efficient cooling unit and routine maintenance. It operates two days a week, making 40 deliveries, and traveling close to 150 miles each week, so it is imperative our truck operates smoothly without any mishaps.

Our box truck currently serves 32 local farmers located within 75 miles of Burgaw, NC, and 49 wholesale customers located throughout Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, Ogden, and Hampstead. Once our box truck is properly serviced, we hope to further increase our farmer network and customer base.

In the future, we also hope to expand our vehicle fleet to include a new refrigerated van. 

The new refrigerated van would be a multipurpose asset allowing the organization to:

  • Pick up products from farmers who currently aren't able to drive to our Burgaw food hub
  • Expand our food distribution efforts to reach more customers
  • Grow our programming to provide food for all

Thank you for helping Feast Down East continue to grow and alleviate food insecurity!
