May update from Food Cupboard Interim Manager Debbie Carver

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we are happy to share that the food cupboard has been able to meet the continued demand for food. Several generous Facebook fundraisers have benefited the cupboard, two by Abington Township Commissioners: Commissioner Jessica Cardswell has raised more than $2300 and Commissioner Drew Rothman grew a beard to raise $5300, promising that one lucky contributor would be allowed to determine what shape he shaved his beard into!

We continue to see new families who have lost work and now find themselves in financial difficulties. We’re providing fresh dairy, meat, bread, fruits and vegetables, and pantry staples. And we’re making sure to prioritize the safety of our clients, donors, and volunteers by using proper CDC procedures. Each volunteer wears a mask and gloves, and we are operating the food cupboard as a contactless drive-through. We are extremely proud that the cupboard has been able to remain open during this pandemic by moving swiftly to modify our operations.

If you are able to make a donation, here’s what we need:

– Hamburger Helper or any meal starter
– Single serve microwaveable meals (like Hormel Compleats)
– Canned chili and stew
– Canned diced tomatoes
– Canned pineapple, peaches, pears, mandarin oranges
– Baking mixes (muffins, biscuits, quick breads, brownies)
– Cooking oil
– Ground coffee
– Ketchup, salad dressing
– Dish liquid & Laundry detergent pods
– Bar soap & Shampoo & Toothpaste

Where to donate:
1250 Easton Road, Roslyn
