It's time to take a leap of faith and move out of 110 W. Main Street so we can demolish our downtown Carrboro building and make way for the new!
During construction, the Food Pantry, Emergency Financial Assistance, and offices will be located in Chapel Hill's Historic Town Hall at 100 W. Rosemary Street (pictured). You might recognize the address - it's where IFC's Community Kitchen has served meals for the past 30+ years.
You might be wondering:
Has the FoodFirst Campaign goal been met?
Not yet! We still have to close that final gap and welcome your donations. More than 440 donors are supporting FoodFirst so far, and we are working hard to finish fundraising as soon as possible.
Will the Food Pantry close during the move? When is the move?
The Food Pantry, Emergency Financial Assistance, and offices will close March 25-29 to pack and move. We plan to re-open on April 1 at 100 W. Rosemary Street, Chapel Hill.
How can I reach IFC staff March 25-29?
We are working on options and will send an update by March 22.
Where should food donations be delivered?
- Through March 26, please continue to bring food donations to 110 W. Main Street, Carrboro.
- On March 27, we are not able to accept donations.
- Starting March 28, please bring all food donations to 100 W. Rosemary Street, Chapel Hill.
Can the Food Pantry really fit in Old Town Hall? How long will it be there?
It's gonna be cozy! Construction should take about one year, and then all IFC programs and offices will move out of Old Town Hall and back to Carrboro.
We are grateful for the Town of Chapel Hill's partnership in making this happen and for the extra flexibility of our members, volunteers, staff and supporters in the upcoming transition.
