Food Security during COVID-19

Take care of your neighbors

Feeding Carolinas suggests you serve those closest to you.

As you look to provide food for those in need, please take care of your own neighborhood, your own community first. That is not only the right thing to do, but also the more you can do to take care of your members it lessens the burden on the food bank network. Run to the grocery store or pharmacy for your high-risk members, and be there for them. It’s a huge help in many ways.
