The CCBA is an all volunteer organization that serves by providing social services in the running of a local food pantry. It is strictly volunteer only.  This means all proceeds donated to this fund are used 100% to help those in need. The CCBA was started 25 years ago by the Centralia Ministerial Alliance that includes many denominations. The Centralia Ministerial Alliance was began in January 24, 1985 by John D Lackey.
     The CCBA is open for 6 hours each Wednesday. The hours are 9am-12pm, and 1pm-4pm. The food the pantry hands out comes from food drives, churches, and food bought from the Central Illinois Food Bank at a reduced rate.
Those who qualify for help must meet the same guidelines as established by The Federal Government.
