Every day, people from all walks of life come to CCPC seeking help with one of the most basic aspects of life: food! It is CCPC’s vision to provide food to everyone who is food-insecure in Summit and Wasatch Counties. In order to help CCPC expand our services and raise awareness about this need, we depend on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations.
The Christian Center of Park City has been fighting to end hunger in our community for over 19 years.
How are we fighting local hunger?
- CCPC manages the largest combined food pantry in Summit and Wasatch counties, providing healthy food to thousands of residents.
- The pantries are open 6 days a week and registered guests can get free groceries twice a month for their household.
- Dozens of food drives throughout the year help provide our food pantry and other programs with unperishable food.
- We provide a program that sustains low-income pet owners with free food for their pets.
- Our annual Hike for Hunger event hosted at Deer Valley raises awareness about hunger issues locally and globally, and supports our efforts against local hunger.
- Each week during the school year, we deliver healthy snack bags to Park City and Heber students, ensuring that they have food to eat over the weekend with our Snacks in Backpacks program.

Both CCPC pantries are part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This includes eligibility pre-screenings, application assistance, assistance obtaining verification documents, information dissemination and local farmer's markets. Please see the pantry staff in either of our Park City of Heber Valley locations for more information.
Our food pantries depend on the support of food drives. These supplemental food drives help us provide items that are not frequently rescued from grocery stores. Our pantries frequently need infant formula, jars of baby food, diapers, adult diapers, and personal hygiene items. Financial donations are always appreciated as well.
On a regular basis, many of our food pantry guests have shared the request to better understand ways to utilize the foods provided in our food pantries. Additionally, many of the guests have wanted to share their experiences and recipes with others who utilize the food pantry. This need has initiated the opportunity to create a teaching kitchen for and by the food pantry guests. We have also partnered with Eat Awesome Things (EATS), a local nonprofit organization that has helped provide monthly cooking demonstrations for our food pantry guests.
Snacks in Backpacks
Snacks in Backpacks is a program that provides supplemental nutrition to vulnerable children in our community as identified in collaboration with the Park City School District and the Wasatch County School District. Collaboration through the school districts is essential in identifying the most food vulnerable children in the communities of the Wasatch Back. CCPC has partnered with Eat Awesome Things (EATS), a local nonprofit dedicated to empowering and growing healthy communities, to provide nutrient-dense and minimally-processed supplemental food for the program.
Hike for Hunger
CCPC’s annual Hike For Hunger raises awareness around local hunger concerns while highlighting our community’s efforts to achieve Zero Food Waste in Park City by diverting food to those in need. This family-friendly and community event brings the community together to better understand and have compassion for those less fortunate in our own communities.
Each year, families gather around the table to share a home-cooked meal and celebrate and reflect on the challenges and joys of the year. We aim to partner with local donors to provide Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families in both Park City and the Heber Valley.
