We Do It every Day

Volunteers are Key
Last year, the Holly Springs food cupboard distributed food to needy residents in the Holly Springs area with weekly distribution serving approximately 40 plus families, each and every week. Every one 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..  

We Are all Volunteers

2026  Client families served.
6010  Individuals in those households.
   185  Families served Thanksgiving dinners
  187  Student lunch kits for track-out & summer break.

LET ME SPEAK FOR SOME
YOU MAY NOT HAVE MET

volunteering


  • A young unemployed father caring for 2 babies on his own says, “Thank You.”
  • An intergenerational family of 10 living together because it’s their only option to make ends meet says, “Thank You.”
  • A woman so grateful that a volunteer delivered her food because she is on oxygen and can’t get to the Cupboard says, “Thank You.”
  • 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.”
  • A grandmother raising her grandchildren and needs extra food and diapers says, “Thank You.”
  • A woman selecting fresh produce exclaiming, “coming here is like Christmas!” says, “Thank You.”

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.
