Fresh Produce Program COVID-19 Response

Since 2017, the Fresh Produce Program has been providing fruits and vegetables to individuals with limited access to healthy food. However, amid COVID-19 restrictions, the program is no longer able to distribute food from our regular clinic site due to concerns of further spreading disease. Furthermore, our partners who typically donate produce to us, no longer have the volunteer manpower to share food with our program. Pantries around Durham have volunteer shortages,  further restricting food access to those who need it. 

The Fresh Produce Program is committed to getting food to those who need it most, particularly our elderly and transportation limited residents. With overwhelming support from medical students, we have a process in place to deliver food to patient homes, but we have limited funds to purchase food since we are no longer getting donations. 

This is where you can help! Any amount of money donated would go directly to buying food, both produce and non-perishables. That food would be delivered to individuals who need it most as identified by our community partners. Please consider donating what you are able... any amount would help!
