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.

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.
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.
Snack bags for children are available in our food pantries throughout the summer.
Mobile Food Pantry
In an effort to meet people at their point of need, right where they live, our pantry will prepare food boxes and deliver them to local apartment complexes in a mobile food pantry format. This outreach would be a perfect group volunteer opportunity for those looking to serve safely in a small group.
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.
Fighting Hunger During the Holidays
Every Thanksgiving, thanks to the generosity of the Park City Board of Realtors and CCPC donors, food pantry patrons receive a frozen turkey and ready to cook sides in addition to their monthly grocery visits. During the 2020 holiday season our pantries served a combined total of 2,600 check-ins.
These holiday meals are also distributed to tribal members on the Goshute Reservation in Ibapah, Utah as part of our monthly visit.
