25% of NC children under 5 go to bed hungry.


CPO Friends will match funds up to $35,000!


For one week, September 17-23, drink tap water instead of your preferred beverage.

H2O for Hunger Prayer

Give us this day our daily bread
O God in heaven,
and grant that we,
who are filled with good things
from Your open hand,
may never close our hearts to the hungry, the homeless, and the poor;
in the name of the Father,
the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
