We envision a community in which everyone has sufficient nutritious food.
Our unrelenting focus is to provide nutritious food to our neighbors in a respectful manner while engaging our community in the fight against hunger.
We believe that access to nutritious food is a basic human right. We are committed to responding to the needs of our community by providing food distribution and support services with dignity and respect.
Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf (CCEFS) was established in 1983, and up until 2018 was hosted at Woodbury Lutheran Church. In the first year of operation, an average of five households came to CCEFS each week for food assistance.
In 2018, CCEFS opened a new food shelf building on the grounds of Guardian Angels Church. This new food building has allowed CCEFS to greatly expand programming. In 2018 we launched our Wildcard Wednesday program and in 2019 we expanded our Produce Fair program. In 2019 CCEFS distributed more than one million pounds of food to community members in need – an increase of 42% in just one year.
