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.
In addition to the Pantry, CORA also hosts Mobile Markets around Chatham County. CORA’s Mobile Market provides nutritious food to neighbors in a farmers-market style setting. This program helps us reach those in need of food far beyond the boundaries of our Pantry location. Approximately 50% of those we serve do not live in Pittsboro and lower-income areas in western Chatham County are home to several food deserts. Each month we host a Mobile Market in Siler City, Natures Trail (a Mobile Home Community in Chapel Hill), and other strategic points around the county where food insecurity is the greatest.
Currently, CORA hosts two Mobile Markets a month.
