CORA serves any Chatham County resident who needs emergency food through our Food Pantry. As a temporary measure, while we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, we have restructured our direct service strategy. The client intake process is conducted outside, and clients receive their groceries curbside in a drive-through manner. We are distributing pre-packed bags of shelf-stable food including canned fruits and vegetables, rice or pasta, soups, breakfast cereal or cereal bars, and a variety of other nutritious food. We supplement these staples with fresh produce, bakery items, milk, meats, and eggs. Our client service hours have also changed to Monday through Friday from 10 am – 1 pm. Families receive a week’s worth of groceries or enough food to provide 21 meals per family member, at each visit. Families can visit CORA twice a month.
