Food Shelf or Powerpack Donations

Help Feed our Community!
The Centennial Community Food Shelf currently 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”.

Monetary or food donations are welcome.  With monetary donations, we are able to purchase foods including dairy and meat items for often less than a dollar a pound from our food bank Second Harvest. With purchases, we are able to offer better variety and choices.  


Food Donations

Not sure what to donate? Check out our list of suggestions for ideas.  Food donations can be dropped off during our distribution hours or placed in collection barrels in our member churches.  Powerpack items can also be dropped off at the food shelf or at the Centennial Middle School during school hours.

lf you have a large donation, arrangements can be made for other drop-off times by calling us.
