Why is the Central Community Circle Pantry so important to our community?

Food insecurity refers to USDA’s measure of those facing the uncertainty of availability of nutritionally adequate foods. To make ends meet, many families are forced to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing groceries. With the help of donations and support of volunteers, the CCC Pantry is able to play an instrumental part in improving the statistics below each day.
