Looking for food pantries for database: Where do you donate?
Posted October 28, 2013
We are putting together a database of places for Smart Shoppers to donate food and non-food essentials this holiday season and throughout the year. I hope this list will also be a good resource for those in need looking for a place to find donations.
Please post below if you know of any food banks, churches or other organizations that accept donations here in the Triangle and surrounding areas. If you have a phone number, address or e-mail address for the location, please post it as well.
Here are some of the more well-known locations I already have on the list. Let's make this a fantastic resource for those looking to donate and for those seeking donations!
Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, located in multiple area communities including Raleigh and Durham
Salvation Army, located in multiple area communities including Raleigh and Durham
United Way, located in multiple area communities
Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Raleigh
North Raleigh Ministries, Raleigh
Catholic Parish Outreach, Raleigh
Urban Ministries of Wake County, Raleigh
Clayton Area Ministries, Clayton
The Inter-Faith Council for Social Service (IFC), Carrboro
Holiday food drives from Lowes Foods (starts November 1) and Harris Teeter (starts November 1)
There are a number of additional food pantries listed on foodpantries.org that I will be looking into as well.
Thank you for your help with this project! We hope to have the database up and running by mid-November.
