CCO’s food bag program has helped to feed the hungry in Uptown for over
20 years. Attendees are able to shop through hundreds of food items and choose
what they need. On average 200 food bags are distributed weekly.
The Free Store allows our shelter residents and low-income neighbors to shop for essential clothing and
household items. Many of our neighbors come to us with very little clothing for
themselves and their children. The Free Store strives to meet their needs through donations we receive from our supporters. Our Free Store had over 2,600 “shoppers” throughout 2012.
Dinner Guest Program
CCO’s Dinner Guest Program serves a free nutritious
meal to 100-150 of our low-income neighbors every
Saturday. The Dinner Guest Program not only serves meals
but also provides a place for our neighbors in need to connect, fellowship and creating community together.
