What We Do
The mission of the Community Food Warehouse is to provide low cost and nutritional food products in continuing and sufficient volume to its member agencies who are addressing food insecurity issues that affect the unemployed, underemployed, and needy throughout Mercer County. The Warehouse solicits local grocers, retailers, and food manufacturers for affordable/low cost food products and warehouses them for its member agencies, who then distribute the food to the hungry.
The Community Food Warehouse serves over 4, 200 families in Mercer County. In 2014 we distributed over 1.33 million pounds of food-which was a 27% increase over 2014!
13.5% or 15, 680 Mercer County residents are food insecure.
21.4% of the county's children suffer from food insecurity, and 19.4% of our county's children ages 18 and under live in poverty.
In 2013, 17% of all CFW clients were senior citizens.
You can help us to starve hunger and feed hope.
