What began to formulate over a two-year span has evolved into what is now known as the Clark County Ecumenical Food Pantry. The organization is made up of several local churches who organize food gatherings.

These churches were contacted by staff for the Clark County Charitable Health Service during a phone survey. During this process, all churches listed in the phone book were asked if they wanted to participate in a food mission throughout the entire community.

Every third Tuesday of the month is when families receive their food. Lines are allowed to start forming at 2 p.m. with doors opening from 3–5:30 p.m. Each household is given a large box containing food, the choice of what specifically they need. In order to get food, recipients must provide a box or laundry basket and a photo identification and bill or receipt with a current address.

The Clark County Ecumenical Food Pantry provides registered clients with grocery bags of fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, and non-perishables. We provide balanced selections of canned and dry goods that include proteins like tuna, starches including pasta and rice, and fruits and vegetables of all kinds. We include personal-care items, such as soap and shampoo, as available.

The Clark County Ecumenical Food Pantry relies on an army of committed volunteers and generous individual, group, foundation and business donors to do our work. We cannot do it without you. If you want to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families that are struggling—the low-wage working parents who are forced to choose between food and other essentials like rent and medical care, the frail elderly woman whose Social Security check just doesn’t cover her expenses, the single mother who skips meals so her children have more to eat—you can do that here at the Clark County Ecumenical Food Pantry.

There are so many ways you can help. It doesn’t matter if you have a lot of time or a little time. A lot of money or a little money. Whether you’re a young child or a spry older adult. Whether you are an individual or a company looking for a charitable partnership. We need you.

By donating time, money or food, you can help us in our effort to end the desperation too many individuals and families in our community face.

Donate

Every day, hundreds of individuals and families in our community struggle to meet their basic nutritional needs. You can make a difference right now. Your gift can bring immediate relief and hope to a family or individual who is suffering from hunger. Clark County Ecumenical Food Pantry has many giving options to meet the interests of our community of supporters.

Volunteer

Volunteers truly are the heart and soul of our Food Pantry. We could not operate without them. More than 100 volunteers support the Food Pantry in various ways. Whether you have one day a week to volunteer or one day a year, we can find the right opportunity that will match your interests. By generously giving of your time, talent and energy, you can make a significant impact.

Run a Food Drive

Hosting a food or fundraising drive is easy. Just pick a date and start collecting. Your drive can be big (a school-wide or church-wide drive) or small (a food or CCEFP donation in lieu of birthday gifts, or a classroom drive). We are grateful for any and all donations of cash, food and personal care items. It makes it easy to make a big difference in your community with just a few small steps.
