Description

Help feed your community with Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf. CCEFS relies on the hard work of volunteers like you to serve families in need, so this role is perfect for anyone looking for a physically active and fun way to help their community!

The need for nourishing food is still growing, and so is our need for volunteers. Since the pandemic began, we have distributed more food than we distributed in all of 2019, and we now serve an average of 1,000 households per week. And the need is continuing to grow.

To meet the ever-increasing need in the community, we are in need of more volunteers! We are serving more families than ever, and we need YOUR help to keep going! There is a lot to do every day, and we wouldn't be able to keep up without our incredible volunteers.

All of our programs are up and running, and are now provided through weekly drive-up service. Visitors receive pre-packaged bags of food, placed directly into their trunk.
