Chatham Outreach Alliance Food Bank

CORA Food Pantry was founded in 1989 as the Chatham OutReach Alliance, Inc. (CORA) with the sole mission of providing emergency food to those in need throughout Chatham County. We remain exclusively focused on that founding mission.  We are a 501(c)(3) designated organization.

Our long-standing approach is to provide emergency food, not permanent assistance, to individuals and families who are thrust into a crisis because of job loss, illness or other circumstance. Clients must be referred to us by a social service agency or local church pastor.

CORA serves any Chatham County resident who needs emergency food. We are open five days a week year round. Clients can receive a week’s worth of groceries up to six times in a 12-month period. These weekly food allotments are selected to provide 21 nutritious meals for each family member.
