May is Older Americans Month

In 2021, 1 in 14 older Americans, ages 60+, was food insecure.  This is about 5.5 million seniors. In North Carolina, around 194,000 seniors are food insecure. Food insecurity amongst older adults means they are more likely to have malnutrition and chronic diseases. Learn more at Feeding America

End Hunger Durham envisions a unified and just food system where healthy food is available to everyone.

Our mission is to reduce hunger in Durham by supporting food relief agencies and those in need of food with reliable information, collaborative programs, and advocacy for policies and initiatives aimed at ending hunger and malnutrition.

We believe that everyone should have access to adequate amounts of nutritious food and be equipped with the knowledge and tools to live a healthy life.

We assert that in a society of abundance, access to healthy food is a human right.

Thank you for your partnership in this movement to End Hunger in Durham. You can help us in our efforts as we continue to educate and advocate for change. 

End Hunger Durham is a sponsored program of Durham Congregations in Action (DCIA), and all donations are processed through DCIA.

On our Food Resources page you will find the Durham Food Pantry Directory and Calendar, an interactive map of food resources around the county, downloadable listings, and more.

End Hunger Durham works directly with seniors in low-income housing to improve access to healthy food and other important resources. We helped launch a senior grocery shuttle in 2021. Visit our Healthy Seniors page to learn more. 

COVID-19 Response

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have provided services that directly bring food and critical health information to our city’s vulnerable older adults.

Visit our COVID page to see our work to aid Seniors.

Food Policy

At the heart of our policy work is the understanding that food is a human right. However, it is also a commodity sold for profit, often putting healthy food out of reach for millions of low-income Americans. Visit our Food Policy page to learn how EHD works to reconcile these realities.
