Northeast Emergency Food Program

What We Do

Our Northeast Emergency Food Program (NEFP) meets the urgent food needs of our North and Northeast neighbors while working to develop community solutions to secure access to adequate, affordable and healthy food. Our work is grounded in the belief that nutritious food is a basic human need and a building block for a healthy life of possibility. We primarily serve families with children, the working poor, people with special needs, including the sick and the elderly, and immigrants and refugees who are new to our community.

Opportunities for service with us

NEFP needs people to help operate our food pantry and clothing center.  Food
pantry work includes stocking shelves and freezers, organizing and moving
and displaying groceries, produce and bread, helping people get their groceries as they 'shop' our pantry.  The clothing work includes organizing,
sorting, hanging and displaying clothes, helping people get clothes, cleaning and organizing the clothing center.  Work is available from 10 - 4 Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  Volunteers/students can work the days and hours that work best with their schedules.

 

Remember to identify yourself as a PCC student when you call.
