Food Pantry Program

The CSC Food Pantry program is designed to meet the needs of those in the 40390 area that are in need of food assistance. According to national data, around 13-17 million children struggle financially with hunger on a daily basis. We know in our community that nearly 44% of the children are on free or reduced lunches because of home needs. Many of these children and their families rely in the assistance provided through the Wilmore/High Bridge food pantry to support other meals.

  • Last Saturday of each month for eligible 40390 individuals and families (exceptions:  November and December, it is the Saturday before the holiday)
  • The food distribution takes place in the basement of the Wilmore Presbyterian Church located at 100 North Lexington Ave.
  • At the same time the CSC distributes food, the Wilmore Presbyterian Church distributes personal hygiene items, as well as household cleaning supplies. This is a valued partnership!
  • Weekly on Tuesday and Friday at 10:15 until noon, food is distributed at the side window of the CSC Thrift Shop.
