The “No Empty Bowl” Project of Lenoir County

Thanks to a giving community, the “No Empty Bowl” Project of Lenoir County has currently served over 200 families. While we are no longer doing weekly pet food distribution days, you mays continue to donate pet food, we will be accepting food or monetary donations (Checks or cash only, make checks payable to Lenoir County Cooperative Extension) on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.- 1 p.m., at the Lenoir County Farmers Market, or during the week at the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Lenoir County office, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Call 252-527-2191 for more information.

If you are in an industry that has been struggling or shut down completely, and you have animals that you are worried about feeding, please call the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Lenoir County Center, at 252-527-2191, and we will set up a time to meet you, or if you do not have transportation complete the link below for delivery. This will be as long as supplies last.

N.C. Cooperative Extension of Lenoir County in cooperation with the Lenoir County SPCA is setting up a pet food distribution to help lighten the load for as many Lenoir County residents as we can possibly help. Pets are too often the silent victims when tragedy strikes. No innocent, beloved family pet should have go hungry.

N.C. Cooperative Extension of Lenoir County and the Lenoir County SPCA would like to help in the best way we know how. We know that pet food is not the only thing on your mind or the only thing that you need, but we know that love your pets very dearly (as we do ours). And if we can help in some small way, that’s exactly what we’d like to do. At this point, every little bit that we can do for each other helps.


The Whitley law firm has joined us in our mission to spread awareness about the “No Empty Bowl Project” and to raise dollars during this crisis, if you are willing to donate, or need assistance, see the Whitley Law Firm website for all of the information necessary to help your pets.
