CCM FOOD PANTRY
The CCM Food Pantry is one of the largest volume food pantries in the South Bay Area. Open every third Saturday of the month, the pantry provides emergency food to thousands of hungry children and adults annually. Volunteers from the community and Inglewood Community Church staff the pantry, purchase food, and keep the facility stocked and clean. Each consumer receives a food bag containing one day’s allotment of food (three meals) for each person in the household. This service is offered to each consumer up to four times per year (three times plus one holiday). During the Thanksgiving holiday, food bags include turkeys as available.
Some highlights from our 2009 fiscal year:
- Staff responded to over 6,000 requests for food assistance
- 72% of those receiving emergency food assistance belonged to families with children
- 48% of those receiving emergency food assistance were children
Los Angeles Regional Food Bank CCM is proud to partner with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and other food rescue organizations. Food is picked-up from the Food Bank weekly with regular shipments of surplus and donated food (both fresh and non-perishable) and delivered to CCM for distribution through our Emergency Food Pantry.
Location: Inglewood Community Church, 742 N. LaBrea Ave, in the City of Inglewood near the corner of Hyde Park and LaBrea Avenue south of downtown Inglewood. Entrance to the Food Pantry is on LaBrea Avenue.
Hours: Every third Saturday morning, 10:00 a.m. – 12noon
