Our mission...

Help us Help Others

Volunteers are key


...​is to provide supplemental food and referral assistance to those in need in the Holly Springs Community. Join us in making a difference.

I invite you to join us – sorting food, filling bags, carrying bags, working in the garden, organizing food drives, transporting food, raising funds to pay the bills ... There are so many ways to help. I can’t promise that it will be easy – but I do promise you’ll be blessed.

Everyone working at the Food Cupboard is a volunteer, including our board of directors and all our hands-on shelf stockers, food organizers, bag fillers, food distributors, maintenance workers, gardeners, planners, phone answerers, ad writers, record keepers, website developers, and more. We help community partners with food drives, fundraising activities, food pick-ups, and awareness outreach. We manage the monetary donations that come in, pay bills for our cupboard home, and file a yearly form 990 tax return for our 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Many, many, volunteers allow all this to happen..

An amazed mom who embraces a birthday cake for her daughter’s special day says, “Thank You.”

An excited child taking home her very own used book to read says, “Thank You.”

A tearful mother of 4 who lives in a nice neighborhood and has never had to ask for help before – until her husband left taking all their money – says, “Thank You.”
