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

Currently, the pantry items we are in biggest need of are:

  1. Spaghetti noodles (we are completely out!)
  2. Diced tomatoes
  3. Canned chicken
  4. Canned peas, carrots, and potatoes
  5. Any kind of canned beans (baked, black, kidney, etc.) except for green beans and pintos
  6. Any canned fruit (mixed, peaches, pineapple, etc.) except for pears
  7. Paper towels

As always, we especially seek low sodium, no sugar-added, and whole grain items.

Currently, we have plenty of:

Canned green beans and corn, canned pintos, pears, pasta sauce (15 oz), tuna, soup, macaroni & cheese, and tomato sauce.

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.

2023 Mobile Food Pantry dates:

Thursday, April 13th – 10am-12pm – Think Kingdom Church parking lot – 465 S Cannon Blvd, Kannapolis (across from McDonalds)

Thursday, May 11th – 10am-12pm – St James the Greater Catholic Church – Guadalupe Hall parking lot – 135 Manor Ave SW, Concord  (different location than before!)

Thursday, June 29th – 10am-12pm – Location to be announced

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!
