Through our food pantry and student nutrition programs we strive to provide as much fresh and healthy food as possible. Our most recent calculation showed that a family of 4 can save up to $165 per week by “shopping” at the pantry!
Our food pantries are 'client choice' allowing guests to choose from a wide selection of goods such as meat, dairy, eggs, grains, fresh produce and personal hygiene essentials.
The Fresh Food Collective was formed to solve two problems we face in America:
food waste and hunger. We recover produce that would otherwise go to waste and distribute it to those in need through partnerships with local farms, senior centers, libraries, non-profits, churches, and businesses.
In a country of such abundance, everyone should have access to
Real. Fresh. Food.
FOOD as health
At CFC we believe that good food is the key to good health and good health is the key to strong communities. In 2019, we developed our first clinically based food as medicine program in collaboration with area healthcare providers.
Our focus on community health also includes 'Edible Education', a program offering cooking classes for children and adults.
