Update: $ instead of first Sunday food bags

Joe Retzer, our food bag deliverer, received this update from Urban Ministries today.  The take home message:  make an online donation instead of bringing a food bag on April 5.

From Urban Ministries:

  • Food drives will be suspended until further notice to limit person to person contact. In lieu of food donations or drives, you can make a monetary donation to offset the cost of our food purchases from the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
  • While we are the county’s largest client-choice pantry, we have made the decision to have our shoppers remain in the cars for the time being. Boxes will be packed and handed to them, with dietary concerns taken into consideration.
