Copperopolis Community Food Pantry
Copperopolis, CA 95228
Details: The Copperopolis Community Food Pantry (CCFP) has been serving low-income families in Copperopolis for over 11 years. It is an all-volunteer organization run by a board of directors and funded only by donations. We are affiliated with Feeding America through The Resource Connection (TRC) food bank in San Andreas. Our goal is to feed any family in Copperopolis that is having hardship and needs food. Statistics from Feeding America say one of every four children in America go to bed hungry. We serve between 50-65 families each month, giving us an average of over 200 people in Copperopolis receiving food from our pantry. These include seniors, children, female head of household, military veterans and all ethnic groups. We have seen an increase in multi-generational families living together. Many of our families are either unemployed or under-employed, meaning their salaries or benefits are inadequate to cover food, housing, utilities, etc.
