Donations help pantry hold more food

Donations from two local credit unions will allow The South Portland Food Cupboard to enhance its capacity. Evergreen Credit Union recently donated $3,000 and Town & Country Federal Credit Union donated $2,000. The gifts will be used to purchase an additional commercial freezer enabling the pantry to keep more perishable foods safe for distribution.

South Portland Food Cupboard, located at 130 Thadeus St., is open Thursdays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and is dedicated to alleviating hunger by providing supplemental food to the needy of South Portland, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth and surrounding communities.

For more information, call 874-0379 or email foodcupboard@maine.rr.com.
