In addition to air to breathe and water to drink, food is a most basic necessity of life.

It is hard to believe that 26,500 (10.7%) of adults and children here in Union County, NC live in homes that are food insecure. Our pantry helps change those numbers through its delivery and traditional pantry programs. A simple and straightforward way to help is by donating non-perishable food. You can bring donated food to Indian Trail, Common Heart, 116 Business Park Dr, Indian Trail, NC 28079 from 10 AM – 3 PM (W-F) and 8 AM – 12 PM (Saturday).  You can bring donated food to our Marshville location, 6022 Marshville Blvd. Marshville, NC 28103  from 10 AM – 2PM (M-F) and 9AM – 12PM (Saturday). For larger donations or perishable items, contact us to arrange a time to drop off your donations at our main pantry.

Physical Food Drives

Food drives are a great way to help keep our Common Cupboard stocked. 

Here are some ideas… 

  • Your church, Sunday school class, youth organization, or business can hold a food drive. Pick a day and ask everyone to bring in a bag.
  • You could do a neighborhood food drive. Give out bags in your neighborhood with a note. Ask folks to put the bags at their mailbox filled with groceries for the cupboard.
  • Food scavenger hunts are a great fun way for your youth organization to bring in bags of groceries. Make it a contest!
  • Here is a way to combine worship and community service at your church. Have a monthly food collection in connection with your Communion Service. As you experience the breaking of bread in communion, you can share your bread with the “least of these my brethren.”

Register your food drive and we will promote it on Facebook and our calendar.
