CAP Food Outreach
CAP became a non-profit organization April 27, 2010. There are no paid employees. All donations or grant funds received go towards purchasing healthful plant based foods or for minimal business expenses. We are dedicated volunteers desiring to help people within Erie County, Pa with the focus being in the city of Erie.
CAP’s mission is to provide healthful, healing plant based foods and personal care items to eligible low income people. It is in this way Compassionate Actions Project® is helping in the best ways we can.
We greatly appreciate when businesses have CAP Food Drives!
