About Us

In 2015, then-10-year-old Mackenzie "Kenzie" Hinson established the Make A Difference Food Pantry to fight hunger in North Carolina. The food pantry has since grown to include a fixed food distribution site; mobile feeding programs for the elderly and children; and outreach pantries to reach even more North Carolinians in need. Kenzie operates the food pantry with support from her parents and volunteers, as well as generous donations from individuals and organizations.

"We are stopping hunger one meal, one family at a time by providing nutritious food to those in need with compassion and love - because it's more than just food; it's about how you make people feel!"
