Our Programs


CORA’s SNACK! (Summer Nutritional Assistance for Chatham Kids) program distributes food to more than 1,500 kids who depend upon free or reduced cost meals at school during the school year, but who have little or no replacement for this nutrition when school is not in session. SNACK!’s goal is to increase the accessibility of nutritious meals throughout the summer to children facing food insecurity in Chatham County.   SNACK! provides each participating child with 21 nutritious meals each week mid-June through mid-August. In summer 2020, we served 1,144 children more than 128,000 meals.

Mobile Market

In October 2019, CORA launched our Mobile Market in Siler City. Using our six-pallet truck, we set up for distribution at Technology Way the fourth Tuesday of each month. Due to COVID-19 we are currently distributing food via a drive-through model. Families stay in their car and pre-packed groceries are placed in their vehicle. Each person receives enough food for 21 meals at each visit. In 2020, we served more 3,471 individuals at our Mobile Markets.
