As almost every knows, the Coronovirus (or CoVid-19) has made its appearance in the Triangle. Since CHCMOW deals directly with a vulnerable population, we have taken the important step of changing how we deliver food. Our goal is to do all we can to keep our recipients and volunteers safe, while ensuring that those who are food insecure and vulnerable still have access to food and check-ins. For more detail, read our Executive Director's message here.
If you would like to support us in our efforts to maintain our food delivery service, click here to make a donation to CHCMOW. Please write "for COVID-19 response" in the honor/memory box.
CHCMOW is now delivering emergency food and supply boxes to recipients who do not have the ability or access to replenish food and/or necessities during COVID-19. To create an emergency food and supply box or learn what supplies are needed, click here. If you would like to support this effort but are not grocery shopping these days, you can order from our Amazon wishlist or click on the donate button above and write "supply box" in the honor/memory box. Each box costs $25. Boxes can be delivered to CHCMOW at 632 Laurel Hill Road, Chapel Hill between 10am-2pm T,W, F and 12:00-3pm on Thursdays. Boxes can be left (on non-rainy days) by the door for contactless drop-off.

Going forward, we will continue to stay abreast of guidance and updates from the US Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and local public health agencies.

CHCMOW moved! Our new street address will be:
We cannot thank the community at Binkley Baptist Church enough for providing our home for more than 40 years. Over that time we have grown from serving under 50 recipients to 300+ per year. Growth means expanded staff, more volunteers and the need for more space than Binkley can provide. We are grateful for Binkley’s generosity and hospitality.
