The DCFP is a new, large-scale food pantry that will be open 6 days per week to families in need. Families receive a nutritionist-designed core package of groceries containing pantry staples such as, canned vegetables, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, beans, cereal, peanut butter, milk, etc. In addition to this core package, families will receive perishable items on an as available basis, including fresh produce, frozen meat, dairy items, deli items, frozen items, etc. The DCFP is able to distribute large packages of food to more people monthly because of its ample storage and operations space. The 7,500 sf facility contains a walk in cooler and freezer to store pallets of refrigerated and frozen items, as well as a 2,500 sf warehouse to hold approximately 44 pallets of shelf stable food items. A large welcome area in the front of the building comfortably seats approximately 40 and has space to conduct cooking demonstrations during or after pantry hours. The DCFP will source food by hosting new food drives at local churches and businesses. It will also work with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC, the Interfaith Food Shuttle, and local farms and gardens to reclaim perishable food items from the retail market to distribute to families. In addition to increasing the amount of food in the community, Catholic Charities seeks to increase knowledge surrounding food and healthy eating habits. The DCFP currently partners with the Durham County Dept. of Public Health to offer 16 "Eating Healthy on a Budget" classes annually. The DCFP seeks to add additional classes through the AmeriCorps Nutrition Education Program. The AmeriCorps member will be a visible and vital member of the DCFP team, offering enhanced services to families in the community.
