The Triangle Nonprofit & Volunteer Leadership Center’s Adrienne Clark and Kim Shaw visited our office last week to present the “Community Spirit Award” to members of the Durham County COVID-19 Food Security Task Force. The Task Force is comprised of over 40 food distribution partners, social service agency representatives, County employees, volunteers and many others.

Durham Cooperative Extension Director Donna Rewalt co-led the COVID-19 Food Security Task Force with colleagues from the Durham County Department of Public Health and Durham County’s Strategic Initiatives division. The group met weekly to solve problems, address resource needs, and look at systems changes to address food access and supply. Through this work, N.C. Cooperative Extension of Durham County has led the management and distribution of more than one million County dollars to community food security initiatives.

Durham County’s new Food Security Coordinator, Mary Oxendine, will work with the Task Force and others to develop a vision for a sustainable, equitable food system as Durham County continues to fight food insecurity during the pandemic and beyond.
