On July 28th, CORA will hit the road and deliver food to food hungry residents on the western side of Chatham County through our Mobile Market. All Chatham residents who are facing hunger and need food are welcome to this event. The Market will take place at Technology Way from 10 am to 12 pm. CORA will distribute shelf-stable foods such as tuna, cereal, pasta, and rice and lots of fresh produce. Last month CORA served over 327 individuals facing hunger in two and hours.
CORA launched the Mobile Market in October of 2019 as part of a partnership with UNC Health Systems and Chatham Hospital to expand their footprint to in the western part of Chatham County. Over half of the families CORA serves live west of CORA in Siler City, Bonlee, Bennett, Goldston, and Silk Hope. For many of these families, the lack of affordable transportation is an obstacle that cannot be overcome despite their need for our services.
