The A.C.T.S. Movement, Inc. has partnered with multiple food distribution sites in order to become a dependable food pantry and resource in our community. Our hunger relief efforts rely heavily on one key component – our Food Pantry, which is open every first and third week of the month to assist food insecure families in New Hanover County and surrounding areas. Although we are a smaller, grassroots organization, our hunger relief efforts have reduced our community's hunger population by 2.6%. Our geographical location warrants ongoing hunger relief efforts, and our impact to hunger relief this particular population serves as the catalyst to physical, academic, social and financial well being to individuals with extenuating circumstances. The projected goal within the next 6 months is to reduce the communities hunger population by approximately 4.6% and reach food deprived families that are missed by mainstream food pantries.
