Canyon West Food Bank – each month, on the second Saturday of the month, from 9:00 AM until 11:00AM, CWWC is host to one of the Western Slope’s largest and most active free food bank for area residents. At least half of our congregation has volunteered at one time or another for this ministry.
In the course of each monthly distribution, we will have given away about 7,000 pounds of free food to folks in need. This ministry has grown from about 3 – 4 families to more than 140 families (including about 160 children) each month.
In the past year, the Canyon West Food Bank has distributed more than 81,200 pounds of food at a cost of about $12,700. Since Inception, we have donated more than $60,000 in food for our friends and neighbors here in the area.
In addition, on occasion, we have clothing and other items for those to whom we minister.
No church affiliation is expected or required to receive food or any other items.
