Neighborfood Express: Free Meals And Groceries For Thousands Of Kids And Families
The problem: food insecurity.
The goal: eliminate hunger.
The remedy: Neighborfood Express.
We at The Marcus Harris Foundation are excited to have launched Neighborfood Express! Through our new free food distribution program, we deliver free grocery bundles, kids books, and other essential supplies weekly to nearly 5000 kids and families living in food insecure Southeast Raleigh (NC) neighborhoods.
The organizing principle behind Neighborfood Express is to end food insecurity where it exists, delivering free healthy food directly to neighborhood residents who lack personal transportation and physical proximity to available food sources. We also connect individuals with community agencies that can help them with employment, housing, counseling, and other support services. Since launching Neighborfood Express in November 2020, we've distributed more than 5000 pounds of free groceries to more than 1300 individuals, delivered more than 500 free kids books, and provided more than 100 individuals with much-needed additional service support.
The donations we receive will be used to purchase the food, supplies, and other materials we provide for the kids and families we serve each week. As we're a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all donations are tax-deductible.
We greatly appreciate your support, which will help us feed thousands of hungry kids and families!
