With COVID-19, Wake County residents, like the rest of the world, have had to adjust to a new way of life. For many, this has included adjusting to a reduction in wages, loss of jobs and other financial concerns. In light of this, Wake County and some of its community partners have established and supplemented a range of resources to support families. Below a list of food resources in the area. If you have any questions about any of these resources, or have any other needs, please reach out to Mr. Bate at mbate@seraleigh.org.
