CORA Hunger Heroes

This event has passed.

Join CORA in building a community without hunger by participating in our CORA Hunger Heroes food drive! During the month of October, we will be partnering with local businesses and community groups to collect food for the food pantry. As many families face a loss of income due to COVID-19 and current families face uncertainty, the demand for our services has increased dramatically. Headed to the store to stock up? Please help CORA support families during this critical time by donating canned and shelf-stable food items. Your support is essential and will strengthen our ability to ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors get the food they need.


MOST NEEDED ITEMS (Please donate the requested items as they truly are our most needed and most popular items.)

  • Canned Salmon
  • Canned Pineapple
  • Maseca
  • Chef Boyardee
  • Canned Green Beans
  • Cereal Bars
  • Olive Oil
  • Canned Peas
  • SPAM




Give at a Store or a Business – You can make a food donation at local grocery stores and businesses. Please donate household and nonperishable food items in boxes, cans or plastic containers. We will soon have a list of participating businesses! If you are a business interested in collecting, please contact Rebecca Hankins at to get a food drive bin.


Join us for our Drive-Through Food Drive – Join us in Siler City and Pittsboro for our socially distanced, drive-through food drives. Download more information here, Drive Through Hunger Heroes Flier.


Volunteer – You can help make this drive a success and provide literally tons of food to your neighbors in need. We are in need of volunteers to collect food each week from local grocery stores and businesses. Please email Rebecca Hankins at to lend a helping hand.
