DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- As some school districts end their meal distribution programs, other Triangle groups are stepping up to feed the community.

On Thursday, NC Healthcare Association delivered 300 meals to UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill as part of the organization's Feed the Soul campaign.

Each week, the group delivers donated food from local restaurants to hospitals around the Triangle and beyond.

"So far we've delivered at least 2,000 meals. It's been about three weeks of deliveries," said Carolina Daly, a member advocacy coordinator with the association. "Honestly, it is one of the most gratifying things that has come out of this. It's what keeps me going, you know."

The organization has raised $50,000 from individual donations. You can donate here.
