Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs


Community Action Center of Faribault

Our Mission

CAC’s mission has always been to promote a healthy, caring, and just community for all people through resources, advocacy, and volunteer effort. Keeping resources uniquely connected to each community, CAC is launching a new food shelf in Faribault while supporting bi-weekly collaborative mobile food distributions throughout the Faribault community.

CAC is uncompromising in its commitment to community solutions. We remain focused on gratitude and empowering a community to build an infrastructure of compassion. Our growing community-centric approach will continue to align Northfield resources in Northfield and Faribault resources in Faribault. CAC is dedicated to empowering local leaders to champion efforts in their own communities.
