Menifee Valley Community Cupboard Receives $10,000 Grant

The Menifee Valley Community Cupboard has received a $10,000 grant from the Community Impact Fund at the Community Foundation.

According to its website, the Menifee Valley Community Cupboard is a “non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating hunger and malnutrition in the Menifee Valley.”

The grant will be used to increase the number of emergency food boxes and weekly supplemental food bags the Cupboard distributes. The organization distributes these resources, at no cost, to more than 1,100 families enrolled in the Food Program.

“Grants such as these are critical in the Cupboard’s ability to include perishables,
such as meat and fresh produce as well as sources of protein like peanut butter
and tuna," said Program Director Dawn Prather-Smith. "We also try to provide whole grains, such as rice and oatmeal.”

The Cupboard services individuals living in the zip codes of 92584,92585, 92586, 92587. Client Service hours are Mon-Fri, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The address is 26808 Cherry Hills Blvd., Sun City. Volunteers are also welcomed at the Cupboard. Volunteers process donations, stock shelves and prepare food boxes and assist in the enrollment of clients and make deliveries.

The Menifee Valley Community Cupboard also operates a Thrift Shop at 26944 Cherry Hills Blvd. where resalable donations are welcome and shoppers help support the food distribution program with their purchases.
