How can we make an impact in our community helping families during the pandemic?
Send food to families who need it. Donate online here.
Currently the Pittsboro Roadhouse is providing free meals three times a week for approximately 50 to 60 families in Chatham County.
The meals are for children and their parents who have been identified by the participating schools as being in need of food.
Depending on the age of the children, each meal feeds around 4-5 people. This amounts to anywhere from 200 to 250 people being assured a full dinner of a salad, an entree, two sides, bread and a dessert served three evenings each week. This provides 600 to 650 meals each week.
And although the meals are completely FREE to the families, they cost roughly $10 a piece to produce.
A contribution to Sustainable Prosperity, Inc. today will help defray the costs of the program and keep the food going to the families who need it most in our community.
Currently the meals are being picked up by and/or delivered to:
- Pittsboro Elementary
- Virginia Cross Elementary School
- Silk Hope Elementary School
- Chatham Middle School
- Horton Middle School
- Jordan-Mathews High School
A donation today to Sustainable Prosperity will help offset the costs of this vital program and allow children and their parents to get a nutritious meal three times a week.
Donate with a credit card here. Or if you prefer, mail your check made out to Sustainable Prosperity Inc, with 'Roadhouse Meals' in the note line, to

"Your support for this program is very, very much needed and appreciated. Once schools stop providing breakfast and lunch, we anticipate our numbers may go up. We are looking for funding sources to assist with this. Any ideas would be welcomed."
