Our next food distribution event is scheduled for April 27th! Our goal for this initiative will be to collect, pack, and distribute at least 20 bags of food each month.  We will observe all safety precautions during onsite activities.  As a reminder: The aim of this initiative will serve to actively engage with our local community, primarily Communities in Schools. The Food Distribution will provide grocery staples to our neighbors in the Raleigh area who are experiencing food insecurity as a result of the economic impact of the pandemic. We will observe safety precautions during this with masks and hand sanitizer provided onsite. Please read below for more information.
