Emmanuel Episcopal Church is proud to house the Coos Food Cupboard, a combined effort of 12 religious organizations in Coos County. The Food Cupboard relies on donations and volunteers to serve thousands of less fortunate neighbors annually.

The Cupboard began operating as a “shopping experience” food bank in 2019, allowing clients to select their own food from the “store” shelves.  Client feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.  Though the food cupboard staff was originally concerned that this new operating style would require longer operating hours to accommodate all of the clientele, it turned out that the Cupboard could serve more people in the same time as when staff prepared food boxes were distributed.  And, it turned out that the new operation required fewer volunteers and less food.  Volunteers in the “store” serve as shopping assistants, guiding clients through their food options and assisting in their selections.

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to COVID-19, the Coos Food Cupboard is temporarily NOT operating as a shopping experience.  Volunteers prepare food boxes for each client depending on need and distribute at the door.

 

In 2020, the Coos Food Cupboard piloted a new program to extend their hours to include Thursday evening.  A recent study conducted by the Waterfall Clinic Outreach and the Rural Health Campus identified a need to provide evening access to a food bank for people who have other obligations during the day.
