Brown Bag Ministry is a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves the homeless and hungry in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Our volunteers which include individuals, families and groups -- gather at five sites on Saturday mornings to prepare lunches that are distributed throughout Durham and Wake counties.

Our website has been undergoing an overhaul, so the new site will launch soon. Meanwhile, we invite you to explore more here about our mission and how you can lend your unique talents to the cause.


Without volunteers our ministry could not serve those in need. Please consider helping us serve our community. Our VOLUNTEER page will provide the needed information to volunteer.

In addition, our DONATIONS page offers a variety of other ways that you can help. We are always in need of cash donations, food and goods to help us fulfill our obligation to the needy.

Making a charitable cash donation in a friend or family member's name is just one way to help the Brown Bag Ministry feed the homeless.

All donations are tax deductible.

Our mission
Brown Bag Ministry prepares and distributes over 2,700 brown bag lunches to the homeless and those in need every Saturday.

The brown bag preparation takes place at four Triangle Catholic churches and one Lutheran church. At our Apex location, we distribute a portion of the bags at the Oak City Outreach Center in downtown Raleigh.

We are also responsible for preparing a hot meal to feed 200-225 homeless and those in need on the 2nd and 3rd Saturdays of each month.
