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.
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
