A Sidewalk was Born!

After several volunteer experiences running carts during Friday food bank distribution, Jack Croom was inspired to make CCCC the recipient of his Eagle Scout project, taking on the challenge of constructing a sidewalk on the back side of our building. With the support of his father, Phil Croom, and Talis Construction Corporation he turned a vision into a reality.

We are so thankful for this offering and are excited to see the completion of the next phase of his project; a hand built outdoor utility cabinet!

An Enlightening Experience

Empty Bowls is an event where art meets hunger, compassion and advocacy; where talented artists create beautiful ceramic bowls and offer them for a small contribution of $10.

We’d love to see you there!

Join us on World Hunger Day to purchase your own hand-crafted bowl and enjoy a cup of chef-made soup and delightful entertainment.
