The West Chester Food Cupboard
The West Chester Food Cupboard provides a two-week supply of food on a monthly basis to people in need who live in the West Chester area.
The Food Cupboard is a 100% volunteer organization, so you can be certain that every single dollar of your donation is used to fight food insecurity.
Make a Financial Donation
Monetary donations are the best way to give to The Food Cupboard. They enable The Cupboard to buy things that are in short supply, buy things when they are on sale, and buy things in quantity.
Donations can be made in the collection plate. Write checks to “UCWC” and put “Food Cupboard” in the memo line. Funds are used to buy grocery store gift cards that we give to the Food Cupboard.
First Sunday Food Collection
In this time of social distancing, we are not collecting food the first Sunday of each month.
Instead, you can make a financial donation or donate a grocery store gift card with no personal contact on your part. Contact Cyndy Bullaughey for information.
We also encourage members to bring in canned and boxed food items the first Sunday of each month. We are participants in the “Circle of Giving” program. We collect specific kinds of food/products which vary each month according to a schedule provided by the Food Cupboard.
Annual Circle of Giving Schedule:
- Jan – Canned Fruit
- Feb – Personal Care Items (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant)
- Mar – Peanut Butter and Jelly
- Apr – Sides (Stuffing, Potatoes, Pasta, Rice-a-Roni, Mac & Cheese, etc.)
- May – Condiments (Mustard, Ketchup, Pickles, etc.)
- Jun – Pasta and Rice
- Jul – Chunky Soups
- Aug – Cereal
- Sep – Paper Products (Toilet Paper, Tissues, Paper Towels)
- Oct – Spaghetti Sauce and Canned Tomato Products
- Nov – Dried Beans
