The mission of the Giving Cupboard is to establish programs in Jefferson County, such as a choice food pantry, to alleviate hunger and hardship, increase self-sufficiency, and instill hope for a better future.
The Giving Cupboard offers food assistance twice a month to households in need. As of August 2019, we are located at 153 N 3900 E, just outside of Rigby city limits in Jefferson County, Idaho.
At the Giving Cupboard, clients are empowered to select foods to meet their own needs. Whenever possible, a choice of fresh and frozen foods are available, as well as canned and boxed foods and non-food items.
Our clients include families trying to make ends meet, the working poor, people experiencing a temporary job loss, senior citizens, disabled individuals and others in need. We hope that with access to fresh and nutritious food, our clients will be able to focus on improving their lives and strengthening their families.
As a private, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, the Giving Cupboard is dependent entirely on grants and donations from community members, local businesses, corporations, foundations and other strategic partners. We are fortunate to have a generous community that provides resources, support and encouragement.
Everyone involved with the Giving Cupboard is a volunteer, and we are always looking for more help. The Giving Cupboard is guided by a committed board of directors whose members are devoted to ensuring we continue to meet our county’s need for hunger relief. The board and steering committee members come from a variety of backgrounds in business, civic and nonprofit leadership. The board is led by president Naomi Schilling.
