The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools has a plan in place to provide lunch and a snack for children at sites throughout town on weekdays. Additionally, local non-profits are gearing up to provide groceries and other essentials to local families.
With current resources already stretched thin and demand expected to increase, your help will make a huge difference to local families.
* The InterFaith Council (IFC)<http://www.ifcweb.org/> Food Pantry and Community Kitchen are continuing normal operations with new protocols in place for member and volunteer safety. IFC accepts food and cash donations.
* TABLE<https://tablenc.org/> has a plan to deliver bags of healthy non-perishables and produce door-to-door to as many of the 727 children they currently serve as possible. TABLE has a Wish List<https://tablenc.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Food-List-2_2020.pdf> of items and accepts direct food and cash donations. Also, on-line orders through Amazon can be shipped directly to their Carrboro offices at 209 E Main St., Carrboro, NC 27510.
* Meals on Wheels<https://www.chcmow.org/> will continue delivering meals to seniors once a week, providing meals to cover five days of the week. Cash donations are needed. You can mail check or money order to: Chapel Hill-Carrboro Meals on Wheels, PO Box 2102, Chapel Hill NC 27515.
* The Diaper Bank of North Carolina<https://ncdiaperbank.org/> provides diapers and personal hygiene products to families. Currently their greatest need is for Size 2 and Size 5 diapers, baby wipes and Ziploc bags. Donations of diapers and supplies can be dropped off at 1311 E. Club Blvd., Durham, 27704 or a cash donation can be made on-line.
* The Town also supports a vast network of Human Services Agencies that provide vital safety net services that may have special needs during this time.
