Help us create a community without hunger

Donate Food

This Month’s Most Needed Items:

  • Oil
  • Vinegar
  • Pancake Mix
  • Cereal
  • Zip Lock Bags

Food can be dropped off at 40 Camp Drive in Pittsboro Monday through Friday between 9 am – 3 pm.


More than 50% of the food CORA distributes to hungry families is donated! This source of food is VERY IMPORTANT to us! To make sure your food donation does the most good, keep the following guidelines in mind.


CORA accepts donations of shelf-stable foods — canned fruit/vegetables, boxed cereals, rice, pasta, baking mix, and shelf-stable specialty items (drink mix, coffee, tea, pancake mix, condiments, herbs and spices, ethnic foods, other pantry staples, etc.). We also accept paper products – especially bathroom tissue and paper towels – and personal hygiene items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, disposable razors, etc.


These are just a few reminders.

  • Due to food safety, we ask you not to donate unsealed food items, loose items without ingredients listed, or glass containers.
  • Please make an effort not to donate food past its “use-by” or “sell-by” date. We are committed to serving our families the most nutritious and delicious food that we can in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

Other Ways to Donate Food

PORCH

PORCH began in Chapel Hill and has now spread across the country! PORCH is a volunteer-based, grassroots hunger-relief organization. We collect food and cash donations through monthly neighborhood food drives and then distribute food to hundreds of at-risk families in our communities.

We also accept locally grown produce and eggs from individuals, farms and community gardens. If you have never donated fresh food to CORA before, please contact Kristine at Kristine@corafoodpantry.org before bringing in your donation.
