Amidst the disruption and uncertainty related to Covid-19 in Wayne County, even before the first case was reported, RBPCDC began preparing to respond. With Governor Cooper’s decision to close schools, feeding our children become a definite priority. Wayne County Public Schools began a drive-up meal service at the schools for those parents that can get to the school. Rebuilding Broken Places CDC recognized that many of our most vulnerable children would not be able to take advantage of this opportunity and partnered with the Housing Authority of the City of Goldsboro(HACG), along with other community volunteers to take the meals to the children in the HACG housing developments, as well as other locations throughout the county where low-income families are not able to get to the location to get food for their children.
During March, we served 3,614 lunches and nearly doubled that in April, serving 6,232 meals. And we continue to serve nearly 400 meals per day, Monday through Friday with a weekend bag of groceries. Without the help of our community partners, this would not have been possible
