What Is the Food Bank?
The Food Bank is a mission of the Cavanaugh Church established in 1997 as a community service. Money and food from the church and individual members provide the basic support.
Funds are used to purchase food and supplies, primarily food items from the RiverValley Regional Food Bank, WalMart, & Little Debbie Store. We are also a distributor of government commodities. Food is boxed and distributed monthly to individuals and families that can demonstrate need and those who qualify by government financial requirements may receive USDA commodities.
There are no overhead charges because several volunteers utilizing the church’s facilities run the program.
How You Can Help
Funds – Individuals or groups can make tax-deductible contributions directly to the Food Bank through Cavanaugh Church. Checks can be made out to Cavanaugh Church with a note designating the funds for the Food Bank.
Food – To drop off non-perishable food at Cavanaugh Church, please call the church office in advance to arrange the delivery.
Volunteers – Help is always needed. Join us in picking up, bagging, and distributing the food. Please call or e-mail the church for further information.
Food is distributed each Monday from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.
Families in need can be helped once a month with groceries. A Picture ID is required at the distribution.
We are a USDA distribution site.
