THE FACES OF HUNGER
- Households with children are the largest demographic group accessing emergency food boxes.
- The average number of EFB's distributed monthly in Clark County has increased from 9500 to 10,100 and 39% of those receiving hunger relief from this source are children.
Employees of CCFB actively and positively enhance the lives of people in our community who suffer the effects of hunger and food insecurity. Are you interested in a challenging new career?

Root Cause Work
In addition to “alleviating hunger” through the mass distribution of emergency food boxes, CCFB also strives to alleviate “the root cause” of hunger. One of the primary root causes of hunger is a knowledge deficit related to cooking, planning and shopping. The CCFB Nutrition Education Program strives to provide the skills, resources, knowledge and confidence necessary to prepare, shop and plan for healthy, low-cost, easy to prepare meals. This program is geared towards individuals, teens, kids, adults, parents and families throughout Clark County.
Cooking Matters is a program developed by Share Our Strength to help clients gain experience and knowledge in preparing healthy and delicious meals while on a budget, fitting with a federal budget they might already be on such as SNAP. This program aims to build the confidence and skill of clients to hopefully mobilize them out of the emergency food system.
