If you are having a difficult time putting good food on your table, please come to CFC. We are here only to help. CFC is committed to ensuring that every person has the food they need to reach their human potential. Those with the courage to ask for help can trust that CFC cares only about the well-being of everyone in our community. Making that personal, trusting connection means that anyone—regardless of national origin, race, gender, culture, age, income level, disability or any other attribute—should feel that we are open, diverse and welcoming. CFC wants every individual in need of food assistance to be assured that they are welcome to access the food and services we provide without concern for their safety or privacy. Any information collected is used only to provide better service to our neighbors. Food is a basic human right, and CFC is a sanctuary for those seeking to exercise that right.


Who do you help?

We will provide one-time emergency assistance to anyone who asks. For ongoing assistance, we serve residents of Bondville, Danby, Dorset, Jamaica, Landgrove, Londonderry, Manchester, Middletown Springs, Mount Tabor, Pawlet, Peru, Rupert, Sandgate, Weston, Winhall and Wells. Our income guideline for ongoing help is determined by the USDA's Emergency Food Assistance Program  


Where are you located?

CFC is located in the Manchester Town Office, 6039 Main Street in Manchester Center. Parking is behind the building. The entrance is on the south-side of the building and we are the first door on the left.


What should I bring?

The first time you come to CFC, bring with you some documentation of your street address. This could be a power bill, a rent receipt, tax bill, or a piece of mail from a utility or government agency with your name and street address. After you are signed up, we will only ask for documentation once per year during our annual registration period. Every time you come to CFC, please bring your own shopping bags. We always have some on hand if you forget but your bags will probably be better than ours!
