Our Mission

Food Sunday’s mission is to provide emergency supplemental food weekly in a way that enhances human dignity.

Our Founder

In 1982 Dominic Jollie encouraged the religious community to collect food at their Sunday services for distribution through a county wide food bank network that was incorporated as “Food Sunday”.

He stated: “To know hunger exists and to do nothing is the shame and bane of human life”.

Food Sunday Offerings

A selection of groceries is arranged for display.

What we Offer

CCFS distributes a weekly grocery package, based on household size, that is meant to supplement food needs. It includes meat, eggs, bread, canned and boxed foods plus milk and fresh vegetable vouchers.

"What it means for me and my family: we are able to succeed in life. So, instead of worrying our bill money for food we are able to come here and supplement and then know exactly what we need to get at the grocery store. That’s how we use the food pantry here."
