We are looking for 200 new heroes this year! Will you be one of them?

“Food is such a basic need, it is hard to think of families in our own community struggling to feed their children. A monthly donation makes sense; it is easy and helps Feed the Need in Durham with sustainable funding. There is a need year round, not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas”. says Sylvie Forte, one of our Monthly Heroes.
Thank you to Sylvie and all our generous monthly donors for making a difference.
