Our Story

The Centennial Community food shelf has proudly grown from the vision of a single person delivering food to needy families at the holidays, to an organization of volunteers that serves hundreds of families each year with the support of the community.  Our Mission Statement is "In the spirit of love, provide nourishment to people" because we wanted to not only provide food, but to also form the attitude in which we engage our clients.
The Food Shelf is a Christian ecumenical organization supported by the community and the following churches:  Bridgewood Community Church, Church of St. Genevieve, Eagle Brook Church, Gethsemane United Methodist Church, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Living Faith Church, Living Waters Lutheran Church, Our Savior's Lutheran Church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, and St. Mark Lutheran Church.
