Food Security

Rolesville Food Security

In March of 2019, the Town of Rolesville Board of Commissioners endorsed Wake County’s Comprehensive Food Security Plan. The vision of the Food Security Plan is to have a food secure Wake County, where ALL people have physical, social, and economic access to safe, nutritious, culturally appropriate, and affordable food.

Rolesville Resource Center

The Rolesville Resource Center (RRC) was created to develop and launch a viable food security plan for the Rolesville area. The Rolesville Resource Center is a group of community members, food security organizations, and resource experts who have come together to develop programs and partnerships that align with Wake County’s Comprehensive Food Security Plan.

Upcoming Events
  • Rolesville Community Food Drive 
    The Food Pantries in our area are running low on non-perishable foods. To help the need many local businesses have added food drop off boxes. These boxes are to collect food that will be donated to Tri-Area Ministry Food Pantry. You can donate directly to a food pantry or stop by one of the businesses. These businesses will be taking donations until Wednesday, September 23rd. For questions on how to donate please call Kristen Stafford at 919-554-6582. New Bethel Baptist Church Food Pantry is also taking donations for their Food Pantry at their facility.
