Heavenly Groceries is a certified food bank and ministry of St. Joseph CME Church, dedicated to providing quality produce and grocery items to the under-served communities in and surrounding Chapel Hill. Unfortunately during this time, Heavenly Groceries has closed and the Marian Cheek Jackson Center has stepped in to fill the void.
Jackson Center staff and volunteers are making up boxes of donated produce, bread and non-perishable items. These boxes are delivered to 30-40 individuals and families who are particularly affected by the risks of the pandemic. Deliveries are made in Northside, Tin Top and Pine Knolls, the historically black neighborhoods in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Jackson Center volunteers are also assisting the distribution of food in boxes at the Chapel Hill Public Library on Fridays.
Volunteers are welcome at the Friday distribution; the best path for information and sign up is through the IFC, email email@example.com.
