Thanks to the work of our Founder William Winslow during his Eagle Scout project, the Food Drive Kids have installed their first 2 Little Food Pantries. These first 2 pantries will provide food and toiletries to people in need. We realized that there is still a gap when kids can’t get food, and that is during long breaks from school. We also are seeing a need for things like basic toiletries that arent given through schools or covered by SNAP benefits. Because of this gap, The Food Drive Kids are now adding Little Food Pantries to their work. People have the opportunity to come and take food from these pantries at any time. The hope is that the neighborhoods surrounding these pantries will contribute to them as well to create sustainable Little Food Pantries. Our first 2 pantries can be found at:
- Western Boulevard Presbyterian Church; 4900 Kaplan Drive, Raleigh, NC 27606
- Avent Ferry United Methodist Church; 2700 Avent Ferry Rd., Raleigh, NC 27606
