Help Chick-fil-A Holly Springs Share the Love with the Food Cupboard

February 1

Chick-fil-A has selected the Holly Springs Food Cupboard to benefit from the restaurant’s “Share the Love” event Feb. 8-13.

When you place a mobile order in the drive-thru at Chick-fil-A Holly Springs, 10% of the sale will be donated to the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. 

Thank you Chick-fil-A Holly Springs!

Precision Marketing Partners Produces Videos to Help Spread the Word about Cupboard Activities

Precision Marketing Partners recently reached out to the Cupboard and produced a series of videos highlighting Holly Springs Food Cupboard activities. From an overview of our services and mission to a video about our history, we’re sharing the videos on our social media platforms and website. Many thanks to Greg Fawcett and the Precision Marketing Partners team!

Want to be a “Food Cupboard Farmer”?

Vegetables grown in the Holly Springs Food Cupboard garden are distributed weekly to those in need. Would you like to help us out on this gardening venture in 2021?

We are looking for some home gardeners who have space and time to help grow some of the fresh vegetables we distribute.

Home gardeners can grow spring, summer and/or fall vegetables for us.
We will supply you with the selected transplants and seeds of the produce we most need. You will supply the TLC and deliver the bountiful produce back to the Cupboard when harvested. We will be available to answer your questions and give you advice (always free and usually good)!

We will be starting soon! This is a great “family project” or youth activity that will help meet the growing need of hunger in Holly Springs.
Want to learn more? Contact us now at Garden@hsfoodcupboard.org for more information on the Food Cupboard Farmer program.

A Barrel of Nutrition

A visit to the Holly Springs Food Cupboard garden will reveal 20 semi-dwarf NC-adapted apple trees growing in barrels. Volunteers transplanted the trees, and we’re looking forward to the fruit they will produce for clients one day. This new addition to the Cupboard garden was funded by an American Heart Association grant.

Sorry, Deer; You Can’t Get in Here!

This past weekend, work progressed on Carrine’s Eagle Scout project to construct a fence around the east garden at the Holly Springs Food Cupboard! Many thanks to Carrine and everyone who came out to complete the project.

Do you need food assistance? Know someone who does?

Please visit us. These are unprecedented circumstances, and we are here to help. Drive-through food distribution is every Thursday, 2-5 p.m. Deliveries are available to senior citizens and persons with compromised health or without transportation. Click here for more information.

Donating food?

Thank you! We are able to receive food on Mondays, 9-11 a.m. (this is our preferred time) and Thursdays, noon-5 p.m. Place donations on our delivery dock on the side of our facility and knock to allow for safe distancing. Or, give us a call and we can meet you to pick up food from your neighborhood.

If you’re looking for ways to help, consider donating cloth or vinyl reusable shopping bags and other items for student track-out bags that contain kid-friendly foods and snack items for students without access to school-provided meals. With schools not fully reopened, we’ve seen a significant increase in the track-out bags we give to families with children.

Most needed items:

  • Small boxes of raisins
  • Shelf stable milks in individual or quart size (We cannot distribute out-of-date milk.)
  • Individual juices
  • Pop top fruits
  • Granola or cereal bars
  • Reusable grocery size cloth or vinyl bags

Thank you, again, to our dedicated volunteers and generous community for making everything we do possible.
