Dear Colleagues,

The Columbia Community Service (CCS) 71st Annual Appeal is conducting an emergency food drive to assist food pantries and soup kitchens that are experiencing an increased demand this fall.

Please bring your non-perishable, unexpired food donations to: Drop Off Location: Low Library – Room 111, Room 302, or Room 309

CCS will distribute food donations to the following organizations:

  • Broadway CommunityThe faith-based community organization located in the Broadway Presbyterian Church on 114th Street and Broadway has a Four-Star Soup Kitchen that is at the heart of two dozen programs, including a doctor’s office, pantries, clothing, referrals, advocacy, and other emergency services for those in need.
  • Cathedral Community Cares: CCC’s mission is to combat and alleviate poverty through preventative services, education, and advocacy, specifically targeting the issues of health and hunger. The soup kitchen feeds two full meals every Sunday from its West 114th and Amsterdam location.
  • NY Common Pantry:  The Pantry fights hunger and food insecurity through programs that establish long-term independence for its clients. Programs include distribution of nutritious, fresh food packages and hot breakfasts and dinners, as well as supplemental assistance to seniors over 60.
  • St. Mary’s Soup Kitchen: Every Saturday afternoon, this Outreach Soup Kitchen volunteers prepare 80-100 lunches for hungry and homeless people on the streets and in parks in Harlem. At 2:00 pm, they deliver meals by car or on foot from west to east, and inform people about other free services offered through the church, such as the medical and dental clinic and the free Friday night movie.
