CCS is a faith-based agency helping people of Elkhart County weather life’s storms and build more secure futures through emergency assistance and intensive job and life skills training. Its food pantry provides emergency relief for the most vulnerable households in the county.
With a goal of providing enough food to each family for one week, each of the approximate 2,300 families who visit the pantry each month receives approximately 70 pounds of food. Funding from the ECCF will help purchase a newer, reconditioned lift truck to safely and efficiently unload and move over 70 tons of food each month via its new truck well and pallet rack storage system, part of Phase II of CCS’ building plan.
