About US

Food Assistance, Inc. (FAI) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable organization based in Greensboro, NC. Founded in 2003 by Jane Carlson, FAI serves low-income and disabled seniors in Guilford County.

Currently FAI assists 450 families each month with upwards of 150 community volunteers delivering food, friendship, and hope. These groceries are at no charge to the recipients. You can be a blessing and receive a blessing by spending just 5-15 minutes with each recipient when you deliver their food. It is a chance to give back to the community (meet some of our "hidden national treasures") and make a difference in the lives of our elderly citizens.

After a lifetime of work, many seniors are living on fixed incomes that often force them to choose between paying for basic necessities or buying groceries. Limited mobility and dependence on outside assistance makes seniors particularly vulnerable to hunger. 19.5% of seniors live in or at the poverty level.
