What is Wake Relief?
Since 1975, Wake Relief has provided food to Wake County residents in emergency situations. Wake Relief DOES NOT CHARGE for the food provided. Local agencies, churches, and other outreach organizations may refer clients or individuals may reach out to us if in need. Wake Relief provides a week's worth of nutritional groceries based on the size of the family.

Who We Are
We are Wake Relief, an all-volunteer run organization. We do not have a paid administrator. Our funding comes from grants and donations from individuals. With the exception of incidentals and rent, money goes to the purchase of food for our shelves. Additional food is supplemented by Interfaith Food Shuttle and food drives.
Who Helps Us
Who helps us and runs Wake Relief is our many dedicated volunteers! Volunteers sign up to serve assigned year round monthly shifts. Each shift serves those in need by packing bags of food based on family size, restocking the shelves, and distributing groceries to clients and helping carry groceries to cars, if needed. The day chair assigned to the shift records clients in our database.
How You Can Help
How you can help is to volunteer, organize a food drive, or make a donation. Contact us by leaving a message for Wake Relief on the phone number listed. Want to organize a food drive?
