Fighting Food Insecurity in Chatham County

Mobile Market

CORA’s Mobile Market also provides nutritious food to neighbors facing food insecurity in Chatham County. This program helps us reach those in need of food far beyond the boundaries of our Pantry location in Pittsboro. Approximately 70% of those we serve do not live in Pittsboro or surrounding areas, and lower-income areas in our community are home to several food deserts. We currently distribute food via a drive-through model. Families stay in their cars, and pre-packed groceries are placed in their vehicles. We host a Mobile Market in Siler City and at Nature Trail in Chapel Hill each month. We occasionally host additional Mobile Markets at other strategic points around the county where food insecurity is the most prevalent. Last year, this essential program served 10,000 individuals over 200,000 meals.
