There are many ways to support CORA and the impact of your giving can be seen and felt throughout our community. From food drives to fundraising and planned giving, it takes all types of donations to allow us to feed more in our community.
Research shows that access to nutritious food is the key to a healthy community, where children do well in school, families thrive, and seniors do not face the stress of choosing between food and other necessities. Providing nutritious food in underserved areas improves the community’s health and economic vitality. According to the North Carolina Budget and Tax Center, approximately 11% of the population in Chatham County lives at or below the poverty level, and 27% is considered low-income. In addition, according to the 2021 Chatham County Health Assessment, more than 1 in 6 households reported cost as a barrier to eating healthy snacks and meals. Last year, CORA distributed 1.28 million meals to over 10,000 individuals. CORA is dedicated to improving access to nutritious food and the quality of life by meeting the needs of those facing food insecurity through our various programs.
CORA is determined to make sure we are moving the needle towards a community without hunger. It’s critical that we work together to achieve this and take care of the most vulnerable in our community.
