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.

CCEFS is a food shelf located in Oakdale. Currently, we provide food to more than 1,000 families each week through our regular food shelf visits, Produce Fairs, Wildcard Wednesday program, and our Mobile Food Shelf.
During these difficult times, we know that there are many in our community who may be looking for help from CCEFS for the first time, or may have relied on us in the past and need us now more than ever.
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.
Our primary service area is Oakdale, Woodbury, Landfall, and South Maplewood. However, our services are available to anyone who needs them, regardless of where they live.
To meet the ever-growing 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.
