Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

3/13/2020


The health, safety and wellbeing of our clients, volunteers and community have always been the primary focus of the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. The COVID-19 pandemic and its local impacts do not change our focus or our mission – to provide supplemental food and referral assistance to those in need in the Holly Springs community.


The Holly Springs Food Cupboard remains committed to helping people in our community and remaining open while following recommendations from the CDC, Food Bank of C&ENC and government agencies.

We Remain Open

Our volunteers always have upheld best practices for facility cleanliness and personal hygiene. We continue operations using extra care cleaning our facility, washing our hands, wearing gloves when appropriate, and following food safety guidelines. As an added precaution, we are limiting the number of people in the Cupboard at one time.

Current Needs

Thanks to the generosity of our community, including a food drive last week by Holly Ridge Elementary School, our shelves currently are stocked at good levels. If Wake County Public Schools close, we will offer track-out bags to all families with children out of school, which provide child-friendly foods and snacks. Items needed for those track-out bags for children include:

  • Soup
  • Popcorn
  • Shelf-stable milk
  • Individual juices or drinks
  • Raisins
  • Canned meats

The Cupboard can receive donated food on:

  • Mondays 9-11 a.m.
  • Thursdays noon-5 p.m.
