Review for West Chester Food Cupboard, West Chester, PA, USA
I have been volunteering at the WCFC since 2012 and have found it to be a wonderful and rewarding experience. When I began volunteering I had no idea that the needs of many people in our community were so great. I have been extremely impressed by the generosity of our donors as well as our volunteers, many of whom give multiple hours a week of their time to meet the needs of running the largest food cupboard in our county. We are an all-volunteer organization so that every penny donated is used for either our overhead or for the purchase of food. Although I spend many of my hours purchasing a vast variety of healthy foods which we make available to our clients, I most enjoy meeting our clients, hearing their stories and seeing what a difference the cupboard makes in easing their struggles with food insecurity. I love that we are a client choice cupboard, so that our clients are empowered to select the items they want for themselves and their families. Many are working mothers and fathers who simply have trouble making ends meet with the high cost of living in our county. The atmosphere of the WCFC is welcoming to all, clients and volunteers alike, and the volunteers are committed to working together to accomplish our mission which states that no one should go hungry.
