The CCM Crisis Center operates 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.

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. Grocery stores, assigned by Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, and volunteer pick-up drivers make this ministry possible. You may access our pantry once every calendar month.

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.
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. Please do not arrive more than one hour before the stated time. Prepare to carry home several bags and/or boxes of free groceries!!!
At registration, we will ask the following:
Your name, address, phone #, number of people in your family, # of family members by age group, your household’s gross income
In case of bad weather, the mobile pantry will be canceled.
An evening meal is provided and served by a variety of Kannapolis area churches, businesses, and civic organizations. All are welcome. No questions are asked and no forms to fill out. You and your family are invited to join us for a free take-out meal at the following locations from 5:00pm – 5:30pm:
- Mondays: New Hope Lutheran Church (hosted by Journey Church of Kannapolis) –1615 Brantley Rd, Kannapolis
