Community Cupboard

The Elk Rapids Community Cupboard, in its 22nd year of operation, is a non-profit charitable organization serving people in need living in the Elk Rapids School District area. It is supported only by local donations!

We couldn’t do it without you!

On behalf of all the people who benefit from their generosity, the Community Cupboard says a heartfelt thank-you to the corporations, foundations, associations, families and individuals who support our work through contributions.

Because of this support, the Community Cupboard is able to fulfill its role as a significant piece of the safety net for some of our most vulnerable neighbors, despite today’s economic challenges.

Although the Community Cupboard has a front-line position in the battle against hunger and poverty in the Elk Rapids area, we never forget that our success depends on your strong support.

Generally, the Community Cupboard volunteers deliver food every other Friday morning.

If you should need help, have food items to donate or wish to volunteer, please contact the Community Cupboard at (231) 264-9828.

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. – Acts 20:28

Did You Know…?

One out of every five Michigan families does not earn enough to afford the basic necessities (housing, food and child care) although 85 percent of these households have at least one family member who is working. Only 6 percent of them receive welfare.
