As we move into the season of giving and thanks, please remember our neighbors for whom a bag of groceries is a gift. In 2013 alone, the West Chester Food Cupboard has been a crucial source of food for nearly 2,000 individuals each month—some of the children, families and elderly who live in the 19380 and 19382 zip codes and do not have enough to eat.
Your gift at this time of year has enormous impact on the quality of life of our neighbors who come to the Cupboard. A five-day food supply is often what stands between our clients and hunger, serving as the nutritional bridge that supports them until their next pay checks or food stamps arrive. The Cupboard provides a warm, respectful environment for clients, who take home vital non-perishable items as well as fresh fruit, dairy and meat.
Clients say: “Coming here helps me make ends meet…I can come here once a month and get food which helps me stretch my money to pay my bills…it makes a big difference…thank God I can come here for food…money is so tight and I often can’t afford to buy food…I love the fresh produce…you guys are all so kind…”
The West Chester Food Cupboard is an all-volunteer organization dependent almost entirely on community support. Your donations allow us to continue our work serving the hungry in West Chester – the Cupboard simply cannot exist without you. At the holiday, and throughout the year, our neighbors are counting on us. Please give as generously as you can to the West Chester Food Cupboard, because no one should go hungry, and know that your impact on our community is immediate and important.
