  • Description: For the past 20 years, the ACOC Food Pantry Program has provided free bagged groceries to hungry families, seniors, and single adults. On average, the program hands out approximately 600 bags of groceries per month. For what most people spend on eating out any given day ($12), we are able to provide groceries for an entire family for a week. Our Food Pantry Program is supported by all-volunteer staff and food donation come to us through the generosity of individuals and our corporate partners. During the holiday season, we hand out hundreds of turkeys and healthy side dishes for Thanksgiving, and food baskets and toys at Christmas, all going to needy families in our community. We take pride in being able to provide this most basic service to those in need, and realize that our Food Pantry provides much needed sustenance to individuals and families that sometimes have no other option. Due to overwhelming demand, our Food Pantry hours are 10am-11:30am Tuesday through Thursday. Food donations are accepted Monday through Friday.
