Community Action Center of Northfield (CAC)

Fulfilling our neighbors' basic needs



Connect with CAC

Working with healthcare professionals, CAC has made temporary changes to our food shelf and resource center during the COVID-19 pandemic so that we can meet our two highest priorities:

  1. Provide our clients with food, needed more now than ever
  2. Keep everyone safe including volunteers, clients, and staff

Effective immediately, we have adjusted our food shelf service and created a “drive-thru” where people can still access the same amount of pre-packed food. Click HERE for a full list of precautions.

Please indicate HERE your desire to be contacted about additional volunteer opportunities. We are reaching out to our clients and working closely with our school district and community partners to identify additional food access and other needs.

Volunteers are vital in helping us to fulfill our mission of meeting the needs of those in our community. There are a number of ways we could use your help in our food shelf, from curbside delivery to stocking our shelves.

Volunteer at CAC!


Last year over 1,000 volunteers gave close to 25,000 hours of their valuable time to CAC!  Helping our neighbors feel connected to and supported by their community is at the heart CAC’s mission and we could not do this without our volunteers. From stocking shelves in the food shelf or distributing gifts during the holidays to shaping the future of CAC with your energy and ideas, come join us at the center of community action to live out your passion and make a difference!
