A Place at the Table

In support of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, the West Chester Food Cupboard is hosting a viewing of the nationally acclaimed documentary, A Place at the Table.

Please bring a non-perishable food donation and/or a monetary donation to the West Chester Food Cupboard as your entrance fee. Your generosity is appreciated as we endeavor to make sure that no one in West Chester goes hungry this holiday season.

November Brings an Increased Need

We will just have to provide more food for our clients. We are grateful to our generous donors who understand that we have an increased need for financial and food donations at this difficult time.

Starting November 1, a family of 3 will see an average reduction of $29 a month in food assistance benefits, causing them to receive less than $1.40 per person per meal. Contact your legislators and tell them not to make any further SNAP (food stamps) cuts.

“Food Is Love”

For the fourth year running Wendy Baigis and husband John Freas threw a Harvest Dinner for their friends at the Innkeeper’s Kitchen at the Dilworthtown Inn. Guests were once again invited to bring donations for the West Chester Food Cupboard to this annual event and 924.5 pounds of food and $500 were delivered today.

“Our friends are supremely generous,” Wendy said, and when asked why they do this, she replied, “We do this each year for the Food Cupboard because we have a lot and other people aren’t as fortunate. Food is love.”

We are so very grateful to Wendy and John for their loyal and generous support. Food is indeed love.

Thank You to First Presbyterian Church!

Grateful for a generous bequest with which to build a cupola, members of the First Presbyterian Church of West Chester decided to raise 10 percent of the original gift to give back to the community, “to celebrate and acknowledge that we are blessed to be a blessing”.

The West Chester Food Cupboard was the fortunate recipient of this extremely generous donation and thanks the pastors, church leaders and members of First Presbyterian Church of West Chester for it and for partnering with them to provide food for neighbors in our community who suffer from food insecurity. Pictured here are some West Chester Food Cupboard volunteers with Pastor David Pickett and their check for $50,000.

Fall is Here – Ready for Soup?

It is October already. Cooler days are surely coming, and the demand for soups at the Food Cupboard will be on the rise. Fortunately many varieties of Progresso soups are on sale at ShopRite this week.

You can pick some up yourself and bring them to the Cupboard or donate a store gift card. Either way our clients will love you for it..
