In response to increasing demands on the food pantry, CRS became a member agency of the Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio in 2008. Founded in 1982, Second Harvest is the largest regional hunger-relief organization, with a network of more than 110 member agencies serving Crawford, Erie, Huron and Lorain Counties. Second Harvest secures and distributes nearly 5.5 million pounds of donated food and grocery products annually; and supports approximately 155 programs, including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, after-school programs and a Kids Café.

CRS also serves as a Salvation Army Service Unit, which enables the agency to provide additional assistance for those in need in the form of direct aid. As part of this affiliation, CRS provides volunteers for the annual holiday Kettle Collection program, and distributes a portion of the money collected.

Thank you for helping me with my health problems, my financial problems, and at times, just when I was at a loss for what I was going to do!
You never think when you you’re old you’ll be in the predicament to ask for help. After working all your life, sometimes that just isn’t enough.
Thanks to CRS I don’t have to worry about my family going hungry. That’s never a factor.

Our volunteer opportunities include answering phones, packing groceries, organizing our food pantry or assisting with special events and community outreach.
