What is it? A Second Helping is a program to collect canned goods and all other food items, perishable and non-perishable, from vacationers as they leave Holden Beach, NC. These items are distributed to the needy of Brunswick County through one of the local churches.
When? The 2017 collections will be held each Saturday morning from 7 A.M. until noon, beginning June 17, 2017, and ending Labor Day weekend.
Where? Our very convenient drop site is in the Holden Beach Chapel parking lot on Ocean Boulevard.
To those of you who contributed in the past, we thank you very much and look forward to seeing you in 2017. Your compassion is very much appreciated and was put to good use in helping to feed the hungry in this area
Our collections now total almost 200,000 lbs. since the program began in July of 2005.
Good news! “A Second Helping” food program has spread to many beaches in NC and SC plus other vacation spots through the United States.
gratefully accepted. For each $1 we receive, we can
buy between 5 and 8 lbs. of additional food.
100% of these donations are used to buy more food. Contributions can be sent to
