Kelly Spivey speaks about how she has seen the food insecurity conversation change during COVID-19. Kelly’s Community Pantry started to take the shame out of asking for help with groceries. The pantry is a public, unmanned neighborhood food cupboard providing free canned and boxed items. Now Spivey acts as a community organizer around food issues in her tight-knit town.
Broadcast from the Working Narratives studio, this series compiles community stories about COVID-19 from coastal North Carolina.
