PCCFB Board of Directors Chair, Lee Danaher, First Quarter Report for 2023...
Hello Friends of the Cupboard,
As the end of the first quarter of 2023 comes to a close, I would like to give you all some updates and recognize some fantastic support we have received so far this year.

We continue to see that 20% of our client visits each month are NEW clients and first-time visitors. This is the same trend we saw last year which increased our client base from starting in 2022 with 1522 registered clients representing 4196 household members served to ending the year 2022 with 3009 registered clients representing 7417 household members served. By the end of February this year, 2023 we have added 263 new registered clients representing an additional 602 household members. Things do not appear to be slowing down.

To that end we could not serve all these folks without our wonderful volunteers and our dedicated hardworking staff. Thank you to all for your efforts and flexibility during these changing times.

We had bountiful donations from local food drives on our behalf from Yavapai Food Neighbors, Prescott United Methodist Church, Trinity Presbyterian Church, The Mountain Reformed Church, Abia Judd Elementary School, Lincoln Elementary School and Prescott High School.

Real Hope brings us thousands of pounds of rescued food that would otherwise go to waste.

The Prescott Farmers Market brings us beautiful, locally grown produce weekly.

Safeway, Willow Creek Road, not only provides us with daily prepared foods and produce but Albertson’s Corporation provided us with many gift cards to buy the dry goods and meats we use for our pre-packed bags.

The Bread Depot in Prescott Valley and their volunteers provide us with sliced bread weekly which we freeze and offer to clients.

Panera provides us with generous amounts of baked goods twice a week.
Fry’s, Miller Valley Rd. provides us with prepared foods, deli and bakery weekly as well.

Delta Dental has provided a generous grant for us to provide more fresh milk daily all year long to our clients than we have been able to provide in years past!

The community at large is always dropping off donations as well.
All of these donations enable us to provide much-needed food to our clients. We are very thankful!

We are hoping to have a walk-in cooler installed by the spring and are working on more partnerships for fresh produce.

2023 is the 50th year the Cupboard has been operating because of the generosity of all our Donors and Volunteers. We can’t thank the Community, Local Businesses, Supporting Churches and Founding Churches, Donors and Grantors enough for their unwavering support all these years!

Lee Danaher, Chair, PCCFB

We are grateful!

Our fantastic Donors and Volunteers continue to come through for us and the ever-growing need in our community. A heartfelt THANK YOU to them for all they give and do!

Your support is much appreciated!

Lee Danaher, PCCFB Chair



noun: generosity

1. the quality of being kind and generous.
“I was overwhelmed by the generosity of friends and neighbors.”




If you are in need of food assistance, we are happy to help you. Our service area includes Prescott, Prescott Valley and ALL the surrounding smaller communities within Yavapai County.


Some of the most important work done in the fight against hunger is performed by volunteers. Whether you serve solo, as apart of a group, or as a family, there are many ways for you to make an impact.


It only takes a few dollars to feed a family. Your gift can make an impact on our community, helping individuals and families who may not be able to eat without your help.

The Problem

Food insecurity: a lack of access to enough food for a healthy, active lifestyle.

Arizona boasts the 10th highest rate of food insecurity in the nation, and the 3rd highest rate of child insecurity. Over a quarter of the children living in Yavapai County are food insecure; that’s more than 10,000 children in our county alone who do not have reliable access to enough nutritious food.

And, despite the fact that from 2010 to 2011 Arizona’s number of unemployed persons decreased even more than the national average (12% statewide as opposed to 7% nationally), our number of persons in poverty increased during that time by 10%.

There are individuals and families out there who are still just struggling to get by.

The Solution That’s Making A Difference

Since 1973, the Prescott Community Cupboard has been providing groceries to empower households to create their own “healthy, active lifestyle.” One visit to the Cupboard provides enough shelf-stable food to create 12 nutritionally-balanced meals per household member. It can be used to exclusively feed a household for four days, or it can supplement their other food, adding the fruit, vegetables, and protein that would otherwise be difficult for a food-insecure household to have in every meal.

We accomplish this thanks to
• Donations from local grocery stores
• Purchases at-cost from local grocery stores (approximately $7,000 each month)
• Donations of food and money from individuals and organizations
• Food/fund drives and other fundraisers


Support the Prescott Community Cupboard…it doesn’t take much to make a big difference!
