Provide Food

As a health care facility, UNC Horizons can receive food donations as long as the food is not expired. Health regulations require us not to take food beyond the expiration date. We do not accept shellfish food items and all ingredients need to be clearly labeled.

We would like to receive food Monday through Thursday on days when clients could easily use them.

If you have a food donation please contact Rachel Middlesteadt Ellerson – 919-445-4650 or 919-618-5410 or email Rachel at
