Fighting Food Insecurity
During COVID-19 & Beyond
Since March 2020, we have stood in the gap to fight food insecurity in our Durham community. Food insecurity became very personal to us at the beginning of the pandemic, when schools were not open for in-person learning, leaving some students without a needed source of nutrition. Parents of kids who had attended our previous summer camp reached out for help. We immediately mobilized volunteers and donations in order to meet the needs of the kids and their families. While we thought we would be standing in the gap for a couple of weeks, God had other plans! Since March 18, 2020, we have provided over 104,000 meals!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Spring Break Food Drive in March! We were able to provide food for 85 families (about 400 kids!) during the week of Spring Break. Be on the lookout for our next initiative as we continue to build on the 104,030 meals served since March 18, 2020. Donate below. Or purchase non-perishable items and bring to our distribution site at 2400 Broad Street, Suite 5, Durham, NC 27704 and leave in our food collection box at the back entrance.
