The caring cupboard project

About

The Caring Cupboard project is an initiative led by the youths in our community to address food insecurity. It is based on the principle "take what you need and leave what you can". The Cupboard is stocked with shelf-stable food items (cans, dried food, and other non-perishable food items), household goods, and toiletries (toothpaste, water bottles, can openers, etc). Community members can drop off shelf-stable food items at the cupboard while those in need can take items. The cupboard is managed by students from various schools and colleges in Westchester, NY who volunteer to set up the cupboard, manage donations and ensure smooth operation. The Caring Cupboard is open to public at two locations in White Plains, NY.
