Fresh Food for the Holidays Food Drive

At the Carrboro farmers market, Sarah Blacklin says the market is open every Saturday in December from 9am-Noon.

The Carrboro Farmers’ Market Farmer FoodShare is holding a “Fresh Food for the Holidays” food drive every Saturday that the market is open in December. We are trying to raise enough food for 600 meals, or 1000 pounds to feed the hungry during the holidays.

Shoppers can make tax-deductible donations of food or cash to purchase fresh or prepared food and our volunteers will deliver it to the hungry in Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham and surrounding counties. The primary recipient organizations are the Inter-Faith Council for Social Services’ (IFC) Food First Programs and the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle of Raleigh. The IFC serves Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Orange County and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle reaches 7 counties in the Triangle.
