At the best of times, food security is a challenge for our vulnerable citizens. Each year, our organization delivers over 100,000 hot and frozen meals to those with challenges related to physical and mental health. In response to COVID-19 and the public health directives for physical distancing, the demand for affordable food services has grown, especially for those already at risk. To continue to support our clients and other vulnerable people, Community Care Durham has developed a new service, the Community Food Box (CFB).

Your financial support ensures that we can continue to support people to live independently in their own homes with our ongoing food and nutrition programs, including the new CFB service. Our goal is to be able to provide 1 of every 5 CFB boxes free of charge to those most in need and we will allocate your donation towards that goal.

 "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." – Coretta Scott King

 

The Community Food Box Story 

With the support of local businesses and farms, CCD is assembling comprehensive food boxes containing the essentials for healthy eating. The Community Food Boxes are delivered to clients by CCD volunteers and staff on a weekly basis. While we accept donations of products, we are purchasing items from local suppliers in an effort to assist them during this challenging time. We are grateful for the support of many local businesses and organizations who are giving back to the community in this time of need.

"We know that the best solutions come through community connections. Building on our successful Meals on Wheels program, we are launching this program in response to the many requests for assistance with groceries and food security. We see this as an opportunity to help our local businesses – farmers, bakers, restaurants – to not only respond to the current health crisis, but to help keep their staff employed and their business sustainable. Let's bring our community to the table of those most in need."
– James Meloche, CEO, Community Care Durham
