Client Choice Food Pantry

Welcome to the Catholic Charities Client Choice Food Pantry!

Client choice pantries are a little bit different, as they allow people seeking food assistance to choose for themselves what products they receive, rather than being presented with a pre-selected and packaged assortment of food.

Following the client choice model is important to CCCNMO, because we care about the individuals and families who come to our pantry and believe that client choice is a way to show that we care enough to serve them in a dignified and personal manner.

Setting up membership is easy -- come with your I.D. and one piece of mail for proof of address. If you don't have these items, come anyway, and our staff can help navigate your membership. Once you're signed up, you can shop in person or use the SmartChoice platform online to order your grocery items and schedule a pick-up time.

We hope to see you soon!
