Here are 2 resources for anyone with food insecurities. This is a very recent and updated list of Food Pantries and their current hours of operation.
Also, here is a link from Wake County Public Schools with a list of locations, addresses, and times for FREE lunch pickup. Students do NOT have to be present and NO ID is required.
There is also a “hotline” that people can call. NC 2-1-1 can help people with health and human services needs including food, shelter, and much more. For COVID-19 resources, assistance, and updates, residents can just call 2-1-1 (TTY 888-892-1162) or text COVIDNC to 898211.
NC 2-1-1 operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year and resources are available in most languages. NC 2-1-1 cannot provide direct medical services and COVID-19 can only be diagnosed by a health care professional.

The Wake County Public School System has worked with community groups to set up sites where students can pick up free meals to eat while schools are closed due to the coronavirus threat.
The majority of sites are for all children aged 18 and under but some food distribution sites are available for anyone. You will not be required to show ID and children do not have to be present with you to pick up food.
For details please click on Food Distribution Sites.
Many broadband and telephone services providers have signed on to what it’s calling the “Keep Americans Connected Pledge.” This agreement is aimed at ensuring residents and small businesses don’t lose broadband and phone service during the current Coronavirus pandemic.
During this time of “social distancing”, internet access is very important in helping us communicate with loved ones, doctors and the world in general. It may allow us to telework and keep our children and ourselves engaged in remote learning.
Please look at the following information for some offers below Each includes 60-days of free broadband. More companies are signing on to pledge so be sure to ask your internet provider about it but it is up to you to talk to your provider about service.
