The city’s Think Orange website, ThinkOrangeWS.com, has new, interactive maps listing food resources in Winston-Salem and throughout Forsyth County for residents impacted by COVID-19. The information is available in both English and Spanish.

The interactive maps identify more than 250 food resource locations for children and adults in Forsyth County, including recreation centers, farmers markets and community mobile feeding sites. Additionally, the maps contain information on grocery stores that offer delivery, curbside service or incorporate special hours for senior citizens. 

The mapping resource is also posted on the city’s COVID-19 Resources webpage, the Urban Food Policy Council webpage, as well as the Piedmont Triad Regional Council’s website, said Tiffany Turner, the city’s food resilience project manager.

“We continue to add more sites as we learn of them,” Turner said. “We will adjust the data throughout the various phases as we reopen the economy so that it remains an active resource throughout the rest of the pandemic, and adapt it as needed so that it can remain a valuable resource for the community.”

The information was compiled from the city’s Think Orange community partners including Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, Love Out Loud, H.O.P.E. of Winston-Salem, Ezekiel A.M.E. Zion Church, Forsyth Backpack, Hispanic League and more.
