community food council projects
Pacific Pantry is choice-based food pantry model that allows clients to “shop” in the pantry, choosing the foods that go into their food boxes. The only one of its kind in the county, the model creates a dignified experience for clients, allows for cultural and dietary food choices, and minimizes food waste. We choose local and organic products whenever possible.
Food security means reliable access to nutritious, culturally relevant food for all people to live an active, healthy life. We work with community partners to research the factors affecting access in our community, identify gaps and challenges, and create solutions.
Waste Not Weekly is every Thursday, 2:00-6:00 pm at Pacific Pantry, 494 Pacific Ave around the back of the Family Resource Center in Crescent City, CA. A variety of FREE rescued food items from local farmers, businesses, restaurants, & local organizations are available for ANYONE to take. Visit Food Rescue Del Norte Facebook Page for weekly updates of available items.
The CFC has a variety of projects underway to increase access to healthy food through out DNATL, including food recovery, community food forests, supporting school and community gardens, and more. Click the Projects link to learn more about our different projects across the county.
Nutrition, cooking, farming, and gardening education is key to empowering our community with the knowledge and skills to access and choose healthier foods. We offer workshops through out the year.
