CCM food pantries collect and distribute
over $1.5 million worth of groceries each year.

In 2015, CCM and our partner pantries distributed more than 821,000 pounds of food to almost 50,000 individuals (in over 16,600 households) in Cabarrus and southern Rowan Counties.  This includes our food pantries as well as the backpack programs and the LINCS program.

Grocery stores, assigned by Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, and volunteer pick-up drivers make this ministry possible. 

The grocery stores have proven very supportive of this program.

We are always looking for volunteer pick-up drivers to pick up food from particular grocery stores and deliver to one of CCM's pantries.  For more info about how to volunteer email Lorie Williams at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
