History

A girl has her face painted as she participates in the "End Hunger: Walk the World" in Manila

In 1971, CEAP’s food shelf distributed 20,000 pounds of food to local families in need. In 2014, CEAP distributed over 1.3 million pounds of food. We help thousands of men, women, and children get back on their feet every year. Our food support give families hope. Our additional programs give families independence.

Today, in collaborative partnerships with community, corporate and government agencies and faith communities, we are helping our neighbors meet their basic needs and provide skills and resources to achieve self-sufficiency. Together, we want a more stable, more cohesive, better community.
