Food Pantry Network

Our pantries offer nutritious food, fresh produce, and other perishable items to strengthen and encourage households experiencing food insecurity.

Food Pantry Critical Needs

  5. Canned fruit

The Crisis Center food pantry is located at 246 Country Club Dr NE in Concord.  We are operating a drive-through food pantry from 10am-1pm Monday through Friday.  The drive-thru pantry is also open every Thursday afternoon, from 3:30pm-6:00pm, for working clients. Clients may access our pantry once every calendar month.
PLEASE NOTE that food clients must be a resident of Cabarrus County or live within the Kannapolis city limits.
Among the foods distributed are healthy produce and other perishable items that are moved from grocery stores to kitchen table within 24 hours. Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and volunteer pick-up drivers make this ministry possible.
We are always looking for volunteer pick-up drivers to pick up food from particular grocery stores and deliver to one of CCM’s pantries. For more information about how to volunteer, contact Lorie Williams.

Mobile Pantries

Food is distributed to clients in pre-packed boxes at locations around the community – anyone who comes receives food.
Please note the time of each mobile pantry!  
  1. 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.  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.

A Mobile Food Pantry is a great way to provide a large number of families with food in just a few hours. Through our partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina and sponsorships from local churches, businesses, and organizations, a truck full of food goes directly into neighborhoods with high food insecurity. Under the direction of CCM’s Food Program Manager, loyal volunteers bag food for an average of 150 families. A Mobile Pantry is the best “bang for the buck” when it comes to providing food for those in need!
To find out how to sponsor or volunteer at a Mobile Pantry, contact Kris Edscorn.
