We are accepting donations for Chatham Outreach Alliance (CORA) this December 2019.
50% of the food CORA distributes to hungry families is donated! This source of food is VERY IMPORTANT to them. To make sure your donation of food does the most good, keep the following guidelines in mind.
CORA accepts donations of shelf-stable foods — canned fruit/vegetables, boxed cereals, rice, pasta, baking mix and shelf-stable specialty items (drink mix, coffee, tea, pancake mix, condiments, herbs and spices, ethnic foods, other pantry staples, etc.). They also accept paper products – especially bathroom tissue and paper towels – and some personal hygiene items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, disposable razors, etc. For a list of the items that are most needed and the items that we usually have stocked, click here.

In July 1989, Chatham Outreach Alliance (CORA) provided food to its first clients, a family of six, two adults and four children. Thirty years later, they now distribute more than 1 million meals to families across Chatham County.
CORA is a not-for-profit food pantry that serves residents in need of food within Chatham County, North Carolina. Their ultimate goal at CORA is to end hunger in our community by soliciting, collecting, and purchasing food for distribution through their food pantry and a network of alliances, programs, and special events. Learn more at CORAFoodPantry.org.
You can drop off at 501 Pharmacy Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
