Ebenezer UMC’s support of the Chatham OutReach Alliance, Inc. (CORA) Food Pantry is an ongoing Missions Work Area project.
Church members may donate food, personal care items or dollars to CORA every week of the year by placing them in the wooden box in our church Narthex (entryway). Volunteers collect these donations each week and deliver them to the Food Pantry. These seemingly small weekly donations add up over time and make a significant difference in the lives of others.
The Chatham OutReach Alliance (CORA) formed in 1989 when a group of Chatham County churches joined together to address the problems of Chatham County residents who were temporarily unable to provide adequate food for their families. The Food Pantry opened in 1991 and continues today to offer emergency food to families referred by the Department of Social Services, Hispanic Liaison, local law enforcement, area pastors, the Family Violence and Rape Crisis Center, or several other agencies that come into contact with persons who need temporary help feeding their families.
The CORA Food Pantry provides one week’s worth of food up to four times per calendar year, and requires only that the family receiving the food are Chatham County residents and have been referred by an authorized agency. The need has grown rapidly in recent years. We pray that Ebenezer’s support will continue to increase to meet this growing need.
The CORA Food Pantry operates Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from their building at 40 Camp Drive in Pittsboro. Their phone number is 919-542-5020. You may visit their website at https://corafoodpantry.org/
