4th WEEK FOOD PROGRAM
Contra Costa Interfaith Coalition
Bridging needs and services in Contra Costa County
We accept donations of clean and gently used sheets, blankets, comforters, etc. Our member churches will have occasional “linen drives” to support this program.
Basic cleaning supplies are provided based on need especially those transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing.
Volunteers receive donations and buy infant clothing at garage sales, which are then provided to families in need.
Qualified families can receive food gift cards that when they need assistance in meeting their food needs at the end of the month. The families on this program recieve assistance for a limited time until the family can support themselves.
Our member churches cook and serve meals at the county homeless shelter in Concord. We cover about 50% of monthly meals, which saves the county enough money to keep the shelter open year round.
Basic cooking supplies, dishes, and utensils are provided based on family size for those transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing.
Quality furniture and household item donations are picked up and delivered to those in need by a dedicated team of volunteer drivers.
Donations are picked up and delivered to cleints by referring partner agencies,
CCIC member churches supply boxes of food to assist a family in food crisis.These food boxes are kept in the vehicles of county social service workers and are available to their clients when a visit determines an emergency need.
