Organization Background

Covenant Cupboard Food Pantry (CCFP) began in 1995 as a mission project of Presbyterian Church of the Covenant (PCOC). At that time, Arapahoe County was seeking community partners to assist with its mandate to provide federally-funded food to low income families. PCOC answered that call with a small group of volunteers for several years. As the need grew, other neighborhood churches joined. In 2004, a formal, all-volunteer Board of Directors was formed, and By-Laws and a Mission statement were written. Good Shepherd Episcopal, Saint Peter Lutheran and St Catherine Greek Orthodox Church have joined with Covenant Presbyterian D.T.C. who remain actively involved with leadership, volunteer, and financial support for thge cupboard.
