The Community Food Box Story 

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. With the advent of COVID-19 and the public health directives for physical distancing, the demand for affordable food services is growing, especially for those already at risk.

In response to the current public health crisis, Community Care Durham has developed a new service, the Community Food Box. With the support of local businesses and farms, CCD will assemble comprehensive food boxes containing the essentials for healthy eating. These Food Boxes will be delivered to clients by CCD volunteers and staff on a weekly basis. While we will accept donations of products, we are willing to purchase items from local suppliers in an effort to assist them during this challenging time. We are grateful for the support of many local businesses 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
