This time of the year finds the shelves at the local food pantries. The shelves at Western Fairfax Christian Ministries and Haymarket Regional Food Pantry are emptying faster than donations are keeping up. The summer months are especially difficult for families living on the poverty line. Their food needs increase as children are home and school lunches & breakfasts are not served.
During the month of May, CPC will be collecting food and toiletry donations. Help us fill the food pantries shelves with hundreds of pounds of food. Bring donations anytime!
