Thanks to a grant from our friends at Speedway Children's Charities, local children in need are getting nutritious and kid-friendly food this summer from our Common Cupboard food pantries.
All Cupboard locations – including our three mobile pantries – have been able to stock more food this summer because of the $10,000 SCC grant we received in late 2015.
“Throughout the year, the very generous SCC grant has been helping us keep food on the shelves for families in need. But in the summer when children aren't receiving meals at school, we face a larger demand for essential foods,” said Keith Adams, Executive Director of Common Heart. “We couldn't respond to this need without the kindness and generosity of NASCAR fans and the support of SCC.”
Non-perishable food items like peanut butter, pasta, cereal, beans and canned fruits and vegetables are still needed to keep Cupboard shelves stocked through the summer. Donations can be dropped off at the Cupboard, 116 Business Park Drive, suite A, in Indian Trail, Monday to Friday 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. or at Common Things Thrift Store, 321 Indian Trail Road North, Tuesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
