WRAL TV Highlights TAPRoots Work in Holly Springs Food Cupboard Garden

Click here to view the story by WRAL TV about the amazing work TAPRoots does in the Holly Springs Food Cupboard garden!

Through their work at the Cupboard, these volunteer gardeners help feed others in the community and refuse to let a brain injury condition called Aphasia to define them.

Are You Able to Deliver Food to Local People in Need of Assistance on Thursday Afternoons?

We’re looking for a few more volunteers to help deliver food to local clients on Thursday afternoons.

While most of our clients receive food during the weekly drive-through distributions at the Cupboard, some of our clients are unable to drive. For clients who are senior citizens, have compromised health or are without means of transportation, the Cupboard delivers food to their homes.

Are you able to deliver food to a few homes on Thursday afternoons? Want more info about joining our team? Please reach out to Holly Springs Food Cupboard Secretary Cariann Colman or call the Cupboard at (919) 577-2210.

Garden Update

Interested in volunteering in the Holly Springs Food Cupboard garden? Consider dropping by Saturdays between 9-11 a.m. and stay as long as you like. All ages are welcome, and we try to find fun tasks for younger children. Bring gloves and a drink; no need to bring any tools.

Interested? Feel free to contact Food Cupboard Garden Director Jerry DeWitt at organicman123@yahoo.com to be added to the volunteer list.

Last year, volunteers harvested more than 2,819 pounds of fresh, nutritious produce for Cupboard clients from the garden! Thank you, volunteers! We appreciate you!
