Continuing to Meet Challenges of the Year Thanks to Volunteers & Community

November 1, 2020

As the seasons change, the Holly Springs Food Cupboard is gearing up for what we expect will be a busy winter. This year during COVID, we’ve seen a 25% increase in client visits as people have lost jobs and income. The need for children’s track-out bags tripled. Last Thursday alone, the Cupboard served 80 families, and the empty shelves in the packing room showed it!

Many thanks to the volunteers and Cupboard supporters who make this service possible. Thank you for helping local families in need. Because of you, the Cupboard is continuing to rise to meet the challenges we’ve seen this year.

Garden Volunteers

Garden produce continues to be harvested. Pictured below are photos of volunteers for Heritage Leadership Academy who helped with garden work last week.
