Outdoor distribution during

COVID-19

While COVID has changed our food distribution model, Wagle’s Wings has not missed a single pantry day due to the virus.  Our interview process has been abbreviated to ensure minimal contact between persons; all must wear masks; and our dedicated volunteers assist clients with food already packaged into carts and placed in cars.

The Eagle’s Wings Food Pantry wishes to thanks so many generous local businesses that have supported the non-profit organization’s mission “to fight hunger in Beaufort County.” Recently, Eagle’s Wings received a $1,000 contribution from local radio station 98.3 FM The Bridge as the result of the station’s “Three Days of Hope Pledge Drive.”

This contribution will allow Eagle’s Wings to purchase 2.5 tons of food for Beaufort County residents who are “food insecure.”

Pictured is Station General Manager Johnny Jones (R) presenting the check to Ann-Marie Montague, Eagle’s Wings C.E.O and to Henry Capogna, Board President.

Make A Real Change In Someone’s Life

HISTORY:

Eagle’s Wings began in the fall of 1989 following a series of community meetings designed to investigate the need for food assistance in Beaufort County. Three conclusions were reached:

1. Significant need existed due to the large percentage of the community living at or below poverty level.

2. Immediate steps should be taken to alleviate hunger for this population.

3. A cooperative faith-based ministry would be more effective than individual, isolated efforts.

Eagle’s Wings began assisting the population of Beaufort County on December 14, 1989, through the facilities of Trinity Episcopal Church in Chocowinity, NC, with funding provided by Southern Baptist Convention Hunger Funds through First Baptist Church of Chocowinity. Several moves ensued, and the facility is now located at 932 West Third Street in Washington, NC, which we purchased in December 2007.

In 2011, we converted our facility to a “Client’s Choice” warehouse where clients are able to select their own food items, assuring their dignity and reduced operational waste.

During the fall of 2017, we expanded our operations to include a satellite location south of the Pamlico River in an impoverished, landlocked community whose nearest grocery store is 30 minutes away.

Our working Board of Directors, volunteers and staff continue to look for opportunities to expand our services. We are fervent in our efforts to alleviate hunger for our neighbors in Beaufort County.

Projects and Programs

Eagle’s Wings has several programs besides our Tuesday pantry:

Homebound

Homebound Program provides delivered groceries to about 80 clients who are medically not able to come to us for their food assistance.

South Satellite

Eagle’s Wings South Satellite serves over 160 families in the Aurora-Edward-Blounts Creek area with a mobile unit on Thursdays in three different location.

WIKids

WIKids Pantry provides diapers and formulas for clients with children ages from birth to 4 years old.

Eaglets Backpack

Eaglets Backpack Program provides week-end meals to over 145 students who have been identified as living in food insecure households; this program is for the academic year only.

EAGLE’S WINGS CLIENT’S CHOICE PANTRY

Our Clients’ Choice Pantry on Tuesdays has been suspended due to COVID-19; however, we hope to let our Tuesday clients resume shopping in the pantry in the near future.

mobile food pantry

Eagle’s Wings oversees a mobile food pantry held on the 3rd Saturday of each month at two locations: Snowden School in Aurora and Haw Branch Church in Chocowinity.  This pantry is made possible through a grant from Vidant and the work of the Food Bank of the Albemarle.
