Christian Community Action, Inc. (CCA) is an ecumenical social service organization that expresses faithful witness by providing help, housing, and hope to those who are poor in New Haven.
FPC collects food throughout the month and delivers it to the CCA food pantry at the beginning of each month.
During local harvest months, June through October, we also purchase fresh produce from local farmers’ markets and deliver it weekly to ensure that their clients have access to fresh local food.
