Thank you for the outpouring of support during 2020.
We served 2,708 families at distributions in 2020, plus 255 families at the Thanksgiving distribution. This is a 28% increase over 2019.
We also distributed 2,143 student track-out bags in 2020, an almost 600% increase or 7 times as many track-out bags as in 2019. These bags include kid-friendly foods and snack items for students without access to school-provided meals.
Last year, we received 139,119.91 pounds of food donations from individuals, and neighborhood and organization food drives (not including food recovery).
Thank you, again, so much for helping us meet the increased need during a challenging year. Thanks to you, people in need of food assistance continue to be served.
A huge thank you to Kyle, Nicole and Chandler Courts! Your hot chocolate fundraiser will provide fresh meat, dairy and produce for families needing food assistance.

Niche in downtown Holly Springs is holding a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Holly Springs Food Cupboard this month. Drop by to enjoy some wine, and enter to win. Half of the proceeds raised in the raffle will go to the Cupboard and the other half to the winner. Good luck!
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.
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- Shelf stable milks in individual or quart size (We cannot distribute out-of-date milk.)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
- Email us for the fastest response time.
