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.

Thank you to Northeast Credit Union (Westbrook) for your donation today. It costs, $25.00 (on average) to provide more than a week's worth of groceries to a Family in need.
We served 269 Families in April.
20 of them were from Westbrook.
Northeast's donation today helped to cover the cost of providing between 14 and 20 grocery bags of groceries to these families.
