Following Durham Public School closures, it was apparent that students would be faced with food security challenges. Elijah King, student of RIverside High, had the idea to launch a program to help fill the need. On March 21, he reached out to local business owner Grant Ruhlman (Homebucha Kombucha) who had already been in contact with local farmer George O'Neil (Lil Farm) about a similar project. We quickly formed a team and began organizing, adding Geer Street Garden as a partner to prepare the meals. Our plan is simple: provide 100 meals per day, 5 days per week. With community support, the Durham Neighbors Free Lunch Initiative has reached its first funding goal and will begin service Thursday, April 9, 2020.
Durham Free Lunch! 200 meals per day, 5 days per week. Please give a gift to support our GoFundMe Campaign.
We are now partnered with Don't Waste Durham, a 501(c)3 charity organization, as our fiscal sponsor to accept tax-deductible donations.
