South Portland Food Cupboard

Mission statement

South Portland Food Cupboard Director Sybil Riemensnider completes the ribbon cutting at an open house on Sunday, May 4, celebrating the pantry's move to space at 130 Thadeus St. A large crowd was in attendance, including volunteers, business owners, donors, and others who have supported the effort for the past 18 years. The all-volunteer organization has grown from sharing food with 96 clients a month in 1997 to now serving 677 people each month.

The South Portland Food Cupboard is dedicated to alleviating hunger by providing supplemental food to the needy of South Portland, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, and surrounding communities. We strive to offer nutritious foods, provide a full week’s worth of meals for each family once per month, serve with compassion and caring, treat each client with respect while bringing hope and encouragement to their lives, and educate our clients about other available community resources.
