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 show identification and self-declare their need.

Empty Bowls

The idea is simple: Area potters are creating ceramic bowls and area restaurants are making soup.

You select a bowl and join us for a meal of delicious soup and bread. Take home your bowl as a reminder of the meal's intent to fight hunger.("To Go" option available.)

A minimum $20 donation will be accepted. All proceeds go to Good Shepard Center and Mother Hubbard's Cupboard. Tickets will be on sale until 2 pm on March 13 at the locations below; after that, tickets must be purchased at the door.
