Let’s Come Together

This year has brought many struggles and challenges. As we begin to prepare for the upcoming holiday season, let’s remember those that need a little extra help. N.C. Cooperative Extension, Davie County Center is sponsoring a food drive from November 16 to December 11, 2020, to benefit local food pantries.

Where to Donate

A collection box will be located outside the front door of the Extension Center for no-contact drop-offs. The Extension Center is also open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., for large donations. We are located at 180 S. Main St. Mocksville, beside the courthouse. Ring the doorbell for assistance. The office will be closed on November 26–27 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Donations Items

Non-perishable food items needed for donation include: canned fruits (in juice, water, or light syrup), vegetables (low sodium), soup (low sodium), tomatoes and tomato sauce; applesauce (unsweetened); raisins; fruit cups; dried or canned beans (low sodium); canned tuna, salmon or chicken; peanut butter; dry, evaporated or shelf-stable milk (low-fat); brown rice; whole wheat pasta; whole-grain crackers and cereals, such as oatmeal, grits, raisin bran, etc. and high fiber, low sugar granola bars.

We have identified several church-based food pantries to receive the donations. We hope to collect enough items to share them among multiple locations to reach different areas of the county. For questions or more information, contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Davie County at 336.753.6100.
