Our Agency

The Chautauqua County Rural Ministry is an interfaith human service agency. It is headquartered in the Coburn Block which is located in the core area of the City of Dunkirk. The building was built in 1868 by Dunkirk Iron Works and is the headquarters for all of Rural Ministry programs.

The Rural Ministry has been in existence for over five decades and currently operates twelve programs. CCRM has a strong foundation in the community and provides services for which no other organization is known for.

Each year thousands of families are assisted through the operations with the basics of food, clothing, shelter and work opportunity.

What's New at the Emergency Food Pantry

Emergency Food Pantry News
Greetings from the Emergency Food Pantry!!!  We are a busy place!!   Thus far this year we have provided 37,999
meals to those having a difficult time making ends meet. We are deeply thankful for the donations for the
Emergency Food Pantry but we could sure use more! Items needed are: tuna, soup, jelly, cereal, pasta, sauce,
veggies, and fruit.
Thankfully we have been receiving fresh produce donations as well and we are able to put these in the pantry
as well as dehydrate and freeze for use later.
If you ever have any questions regarding the Emergency Food Pantry, please feel free to contact us at
366-1787 and ask for Bridget.
