Effort led by Marcella Thompson who started by feeding neighborhood children on her social security check, and now is not only feeding her neighbors but also giving children who do not have internet or computers a place to do their homework. She joined the TWT working group on hunger's weekly call on the April 27 and described the "third world poverty" she is seeing in Durham. She needs donations of food, computers, diapers, and money. You can use her Go Fund Me page or send checks to: PO Box 25464 Durham NC 27702. You can bring donations to 219 South Alston Ave Unit C1 Durham 27701.

Durham Free Lunch

Started by Durham high school students who have increased their meal capacity from 100/day to 125/day, and aim to keep increasing that capacity until reaching 200/day. In addition to preparing meals at Geer Street Garden, they are forming a network of additional local restaurants that can serve as satellite kitchens to prepare more meals, increasing the Initiative's total capacity as rapidly as possible.

Thriving Communities Fund
57
Temporarily known as The Equitable Economic COVID Fund, we are concerned about Durham entrepreneurs, small-midsize businesses, farms, and other employers of Durham residents. Historically, communities of color suffer disproportionately negative impacts in epidemics and economic downturns. These can be devastating for businesses and people directly impacted by the pre-existing wealth gaps already stratified by race. Currently, as our country reels from the effects of COVID-19, we know that race will be a multiplying factor once again, overriding even the effects of wealth, health, and education.
