I moved to Woodland Park in November 2016 right around Thanksgiving. My food stamps were gone and we we thought we would not be having Thanksgiving. I asked around and was pointed to the Cupboard for help. They helped with so much food! We ended up having an amazing Thanksgiving with great neighbors. It's March and we still come here!

What Do I bring with me?
With the generosity of local businesses, individuals, churches, schools, government and civic organizations we are able to help those in need. The Community Cupboard's goals are to continue to help the working poor, unemployed, disabled, elderly, and homeless in the Teller County/Ute Pass areas to always have a meal on the table and to become more self-sufficient.
With the cares and worries of the world surrounding our community now more than ever. Families and individuals are forced to make difficult choices on a daily basis. It is our mission to help alleviate some of their concerns by ensuring there is food on the table, that no child, adult, or senior citizen goes to bed hungry.
It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make sure the Community Cupboard is reaching out to as many individuals and families in our communities so everyone has access to free emergency food assistance. We're fortunate to have some of the best dedicating their time, energy, and expertise to our cause.
