What We Do...


Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard serves those who are hungry in the Wilmington area through distribution of emergency food. This service is provided by volunteers in partnership with the community, without regard to race or religion and with care to preserve the dignity of the individuals being served.

Once a month, any needy individual or family may come to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard to receive a 3-5 day supply of groceries. People without stoves receive a smaller bag and are served weekly. Those requesting food are asked to self-declare their need.

As an all-volunteer organization, we are grateful for the support of groups and individuals in the community. View our wish list here. Donations of non-perishable food, money, and volunteer time are greatly appreciated.
