About CCFS

​The concept of food needs began in the Centennial community in the 1950s by Ed Bloomstrand. In the 1970s local church became involved by creating food pantries within each church. In 1987 the Centennial Community Food Shelf was formed. It was originally at Our Savior's Lutheran church but has since moved to Circle Pines City Hall Building. 

About PP

​Centennial Community Food Shelf (CCFS), with the help of concerned parents in the district have partnered with Centennial schools and created the Powerpack Program: a weekend food program for students to take home a bag of non-perishable food items at the end of every week during the school year. The Powerpack Program is one way to provide food for students who may have limited access to food during the weekends or school breaks.
