We are currently serving clients twice a month. However we cannot guarantee now how long this will continue as we move out of the pandemic.
We have traditionally distributed a holiday basket of food to prepare consisting of turkey or ham, vegetables, potatoes, dessert, rolls and butter. We distribute for the Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and Fourth of July holidays. You must sign up for this in the month prior to these dates. (Ask volunteers for a form.) Distribution may be at another church location, and we will inform you of this.
Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we have suspended the Holiday Basket Program for now. Please talk to one of the volunteers during regular food shelf visit, about other opportunities.
Centennial Community Food Shelfcurrently serves about 200 low income families each month, along with another 200 school children with our Powerpack program. To meet the needs of our neighbors in need, we rely on donations of food and cash from area churches, businesses, schools, clubs and individuals who share our mission “In the spirit of love, provide nourishment to people”.
