278 Thanksgiving Meals Distributed & More

Thanks to your generosity, 278 households enjoyed a special Thanksgiving meal last month! So many people and organizations came together, helping make those meals possible, and meeting November food needs at the Holly Springs Food Cupboard.

Below are some photos from last month that show a few of the people and groups who helped the community through the Holly Springs Food Cupboard in November. These included people from neighborhoods like Parks at Bass Lake, which delivered food to clients, and Brighton Forest, which collected Thanksgiving meal packages.

Businesses including Chick-Fil-A, Ting, CrossFit Holly Springs and Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston supported the Cupboard in various ways during the month, also. Youth pitched in and moved tons of turkeys to and from freezers, and a sister/brother team saved a portion of their weekly allowance and purchased food to donate to the Cupboard.
Special events included the Holly Springs Run Club and Oak Hall turkey trots, the Holly Springs Police Department cadets food drive, and a donation from UNC Health Rex Holly Springs.

What an amazing month… thanks to an amazing community! Thank you so much to everyone!

Cupboard Eases Mask Restrictions, Social Distancing Protocols

The Holly Springs Food Cupboard is easing many mask restrictions and social distancing protocols in accordance with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 215. The Food Cupboard remains committed to keeping clients and volunteers safe by following the latest CDC and NDHHS guidelines.

In response to the governor’s new order, we are excited to make changes to our mask protocols effective immediately:

  • All fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear a mask while on Holly Springs Food Cupboard property. This includes fully vaccinated volunteers and clients inside the building, in the garden areas, and in parking areas.
  • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are expected to follow mask wearing requirements per NCDHHS guidelines.
    • Garden volunteers who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask or strictly maintain an appropriate safe distance from others who may be in the garden in accordance with NCDHHS guidelines.
  • Clients and volunteers are welcome to continue wearing a mask if they feel more comfortable doing so.
