We believe everyone—no matter your circumstances— deserves to experience the joy of picking out fresh, healthy groceries. The BackPack Beginnings Family Market helps local families
with children under the age of 18. 

Schedule an appointment before coming

Shopping appointments can be made once a month. Please allow extra time for your first visit so that we can collect household information that is required from Second Harvest Food Bank. IDs and immigration status are not required. If you already have a Link 2 Feed card or number, please bring it with you. We ask that you shop only for your own household. We value children and for their safety please supervise them while in the market.

Supplies are limited

Our primary focus is supporting children, so please note that non-food items are meant for children only. Please take what you need, leave what you don’t for others. Donations can not be sold, traded, bartered or returned to stores.

We are located at 3711 Alliance Drive Greensboro, NC 27407. Please enter through the 2nd door from the street. A Family Market sign will be located next to the entrance. Contact: Elexicia Carter- market@backpackbeginnings.org  (phone number?)
