Chapel Hill's drive-thru food distribution adapts in the wake of COVID-19

For the past five years, the Town of Chapel Hill has worked with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina to distribute food to families in the Town's public housing facilities.   However, as the pandemic has caused food demand to increase significantly, the traditional walk-up distribution didn't seem safe anymore, said Public Housing Director Faith Brodie. To continue to serve the local community through the pandemic, the Town and the Food Bank have collaborated with PORCH, a hunger relief organization in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro area that is familiar with large-scale distribution and volunteer recruitment.
