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.
We are now delivering shelf-stable food in a box and limiting the number of volunteer visits to recipients’ homes over the course of a week. These measures require extra funds beyond those currently available for food delivery. 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.
For more detail, read our Executive Director's message here.
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 is moving! Soon we will be delivering our hot, balanced meals out of St Thomas More South Campus. Our new location will provide increased office, storage and delivery space to help us meet growing needs in the community. 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. Leaving will be very hard!
