Challenge

According to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern, North Carolina, 16.5% (49,600 people) are food insecure in Durham County, NC. The Durham County Community Health Assessment found that food insecurity is higher for low-income families. People experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity are particularly vulnerable to food insecurity.

Solution

CEF Members are individuals experiencing homelessness or financial insecurity and 100% reside in low-income households. Our Food Pantry & Delivery program is aimed to support CEF Members in accessing needed grocery items to reduce food insecurity. Members are able to pick up grocery items in person or have them delivered, ensuring access. Options include pantry staples, meats, dairy, fresh produce, and bread.

Long-Term Impact

CEF's seeks long-term social & economic justice to eradicate the racial wealth gap and ensure equal access to affordable housing. By helping Members access necessary grocery items, they are able to invest their limited financial assets in other necessities such as housing, access to transportation, and health care. Since 2009, CEF has worked with 3,789 Members, helping 944 Members secure affordable housing, 1205 Members secure employment, and supporting 836 Members in saving over $1.3 Million.
