Our community is full of incredible people and organizations out making a difference for others! In this month’s Non-Profit Spotlight we’d like to recognize the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard!
The Menifee Valley Community Cupboard (MVCupboard) grew out of a series of community meetings held by the county supervisor. They identified the need for food assistance to low income seniors and the children of the working poor who had limited access to food when school was out. The goals of this organization have always been to alleviate hunger and malnutrition in the community, and they have done that over the years.
MV Cupboard offers emergency food in the way of groceries, offered at no cost. Anyone who is experiencing food insecurity due to income or crisis may be eligible for this support. MVCupboard is not a soup kitchen nor a meals on wheels, but they do however deliver groceries to the home bound.
After an initial surge due to COVID, it was back to business as usual and the generosity of the community has allowed MVCupboard to meet demand without a reduction in the amount of food that they provide. They have transitioned to appointments and drive-thru distributions to protect clients, volunteers and staff.
For the month of June 2021 Stromsoe Insurance will donate $21 to Menifee Valley Community Cupboard, for every referral that comes to our team!
MVCupboard is hoping to hold their annual fundraiser “Celebrity Karaoke” on June 11, 2021 so long as retractions allow. You can visit their website to watch for announcements.
We asked Executive Director, Dawn Smith, what we can all do to support the non-profit, Menifee Valley Community Cupboard. Here was her answer:
Financial assistance is always welcome. We accept food donations as well as gently used saleable goods for our Thrift Shop which is our single largest source of funding.
Volunteer applications are welcome, shifts fill up quickly at both the Food Pantry and Thrift Shop so applications are kept on file until openings are available.
The public may reach us at 951-301-4414 for any questions about applying for assistance or making donations. We are grateful for the support of our community that has allowed us to continue to serve those in need for 24 years.
