Our Gratitude!

We are so grateful to all the people who responded to our end of the year appeal and sent us generous financial donations. We also want to thank everyone who brought gift cards, food and personal care items into the Cupboard over the holidays; they were most welcome.

A brief look back at the year 2011:  We have seen a significant increase in the number of people in need of supplementary food over the past twelve months.  We served 487 households in December 2011; more than twice the number served in December 2010. We are seeing more and more people struggling to make ends meet, as prices rise, jobs and homes are lost, and wages cannot keep up with the costs of living.

However, we believe that we can look forward to 2012 with confidence, with the knowledge that we have such strong community support. We also have a hard-working group of volunteers who run the Cupboard, and who firmly believe that no one should go hungry and that there is enough food for everyone.

All of us at the West Chester Food Cupboard wish you a Happy New Year!
