Through offering emergency food boxes, events for seniors and computer services, the Pigeon Community Multicultural Development Center seeks to strengthen harmony among residents and re-establish the long-standing tradition of community as family.
Emergency Food Boxes
Emergency food boxes with enough food for about four meals are available upon request. Resources are limited to one box per family per month or every 30 days. Boxes typically contain canned food and, if available, meat, bread and produce. Most food comes from Manna Food Bank or food drives to supplement the pantry. The Pigeon Community Multicultural Development Center distributes 20 to 50 emergency food boxes each month.
Gather for fellowship, cards and games at noon, and enjoy a healthy meal monthly at the Pigeon Center.
Seven computers and Wi-Fi internet service are available at the center to allow community members to check email and use online tools to stay connected with family, friends and their community, to prepare for job interviews or to complete class assignments. Upon request, the Pigeon Center may schedule computer literacy classes. Classes cover how to operate a computer, use email, set up an email account, use word processing programs and look up information on the Internet.
