Details: Since 1985, the Food Shelf has provided food each month for people in need. In 2014-15, over 50,000 pounds of food is distributed each month to about 465 local families. The Food Shelf provides high-quality, nutritious food to people in need. The Food Shelf stocks commercially prepared, non-perishable food including canned fruits and vegetables, soup, pasta and tomato sauce, rice, milk, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, canned meat, baby food and formula.

Fresh produce is available on a first-come, first-serve basis to households the last hour of each day the Food Shelf is open. Bread is available Monday – Friday mornings on the second floor table outside the CAC offices. Donations are accepted any time that the Food Shelf is open. Launched in April 2008, Thursday’s Table gives everyone — but especially those in transition — a hot, healthy meal every Thursday. Since its beginning, Thursday’s Table has been dishing up a nutritious meal to approximately 200 people each week. Meals are served from 5 to 6:30 p.m. in the Northfield Community Resource Center’s dining room, located at 1651 Jefferson Parkway in Northfield.
