“CAM means hope. We know we have someone who cares and doesn’t judge. We have peace knowing we are not doing life alone.”
In 2016, CAM distributed over 625,000 pounds of food to more than 38,000 Taney County residents in need. CAM clients are more than a number though. They are people, young, old and in-between, facing difficult circumstances that result in food insecurity.
Will you join us in helping our Taney County neighbors? It is easy to get involved, and your food or financial donation makes all the difference! As a 510 c(3), your food and/or financial contribution makes you or your business eligible for a federal tax deduction and Missouri State tax credit (The State of Missouri will give you a food pantry tax credit of 50% up to $2,500. To learn more, go to http://dor.mo.gov/taxcredit/fpt.php).
Food Donations/Food Drives:
CAM welcomes food donations! Whether you are interested in donating a bag of groceries or a truckload of fresh bananas, a pallet of close-to-code granola bars, or a case of toothpaste, we truly appreciate the help.
You may also consider hosting a food drive by encouraging your friends, family, church family, employees or business patrons to get involved. We are always in need of peanut butter, canned soup, canned beans, canned vegetables, pasta or rice, canned fruit and boxed cereal or oatmeal.
Food donations may be dropped off at either pantry location:

CAM relies on the generosity of others to fulfill its mission of helping struggling Taney Country residents with the gift of food. Through its purchasing power, CAM can purchase bulk food for pennies on the dollar. We are able to buy $10 worth of food for only $1, making your financial contribution go a long way. Will you prayerfully consider getting involved in the CAM ministry?
