NC Food & Nutrition Services website launched

fns4nc.org, the new food stamps program website for North Carolina

With the recent global recession that’s been gripping our nation, the ripple effects have been felt across North Carolina. High unemployment rates, and a decrease in income and spending has pushed up those facing poverty and in turn families needing food assistance. Some North Carolina food banks now shockingly provide nearly one out of every eight people in their region with food assistance, a dramatic rise since 2007.

Raleigh design firm Killer Creative Group was asked to design a new website for North Carolina Food & Nutrition Services (formerly NC food Stamps), and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Fns4nc.org (Food & Nutrition Services for North Carolina) has evolved from the former days of food stamps. FNS helps North Carolina families with little or no income buy food by way of electronic debit cards that can be used at grocery stores and farmer’s markets. The new website features links to NC food assistance applications, food assistance eligibility requirements, and links to additional resources. Once added feature of the new site is that it bilingual in both English and Spanish. Raleigh web hosting is by KillerHosting.net.
