My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for West Chester Food Cupboard, West Chester, PA, USA
As a volunteer who works one afternoon a week, I find the most rewarding part of my time at the Cupboard is the conversations I have with clients as they shop and make their food selections. Hearing about their day, their work, their kids, their health issues or their food preferences as we progress through the many sections of the Cupboard, causes me to appreciate the variety of life situations that can lead to food scarcity. It is a humbling experience to hear these stories and realize that in this community where so many people have so much, there are neighbors who struggle on a daily basis.
Every client expresses deep gratitude for the high quality food and the wide selection of products made available to them in a clean, bright and friendly environment. Many say they couldn't get through the month without the food they get from the Cupboard. Everyone is treated with respect and dignity from the moment they walk in the door and register, to the time they wheel their full grocery cart outside to load their car.
I am proud to be a part of this amazing volunteer team that consistently provides such a vital service to people in our community. It's especially gratifying to see how well-run the WCFC is with no paid employees and such effective use of financial and food donations. We're all committed to doing our part in ending food scarcity in West Chester.
