What are the eligibility requirements for food assistance?

All residents of Jefferson County in need are eligible for food assistance from the Giving Cupboard. There are no income requirements. On your first visit to the pantry, you will be asked some general questions, such as name, address and family size, at registration.

Where are you located?

What does a “choice” food pantry mean?

Though many pantries provide fixed boxes of food, we are a “choice” pantry where visitors are empowered to select items to meet their own needs.
