The Jackson Center Seeks Food Pantry Volunteers During Winter Break

The Jackson Center is a nonprofit oral history and community development center located on Rosemary Street which works primarily in Northside and Pine Knolls, two of Chapel Hill’s historically black neighborhoods.

Heavenly Groceries/Comida Celestial, the food pantry that the Jackson Center partners with, is in desperate need of volunteer support during UNC’s winter break. Volunteers staff the following shifts every weekday: van driving (2:15p-3:45p), van unloading (2:30p-4:00p), and food distribution and cleanup (3:45p-5:15p).

If you are willing to volunteer for a day (or more!) over break or want more information, please contact William Page at or visit to create an account and sign up for volunteer shifts.

The Carolina Center for Public Service, together with the campus and community partners, is organizing campus-wide relief trips to areas affected by Hurricane Matthew.
