How to receive Food Assistance
The CCM Crisis Center is operating a drive-thru pantry, from 10am until 1pm Monday through Friday. The drive-thru pantry is also available every Thursday afternoon, from 3:30pm-6:00pm, for working clients. Pre-bagged food will be distributed straight to cars. Walk-up clients also are welcome. Please do not come before 10am. The Crisis Center itself, including the regular food pantry, is closed until further notice.
Among the foods distributed are healthy produce and other perishable items that are moved from grocery stores to kitchen table within 24 hours of receipt from the stores.

Mobile Food Pantry
A Mobile Food Pantry is a great way to supplement your family’s nutritional needs. Through our partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and sponsorships from local churches, businesses, and organizations, a truck full of food comes to distribution sites close to neighborhoods with high food insecurity. These are drive through events. No appointments or documentation are needed. Please come only during the stated hours.
Our October Mobile Food Pantry will be at the Parish Hall parking lot at St. James the Greater Catholic Church on Wednesday, October 12th, from 10am to 12 noon. The address is 139 Manor Ave SW Concord
You must be present to receive food. Limit one per household. This is a drive-thru event. Registration will begin about 1 hour before serving time, and will be done at your vehicle.
