Our Food Pantry
C.O.M.E.’s dedicated volunteers prepare individual bags with staple foods before we open our doors. Our clients can look forward to receiving staples such as rice, beans, and cereal, as well as canned and frozen goods.
Fresh produce is given out at the back dock, where our clients can freely choose from a changing variety of fruits, vegetables, bread, snacks, and frozen goods.
Our Clothes Closet
The C.O.M.E. facility’s second story houses our Clothes Closet. Our staff works with great care to sort, inspect, and then place each garment in its section.
C.O.M.E.’s Clothes Closet is very popular as is often seen by the people gathered at its entranceway long before the doors open.
Each month, thousands of donated garments are distributed to hundreds of people on a self-shop basis.
This two-fold outreach at C.O.M.E. is the perfect combination because it strives to provide each person with life’s most basic essentials.
The C.O.M.E. facility building is not large, but the impact of our outreach in the San Jose community is larger than life!
