What We Do

Holly Springs Food Cupboard

Our mission…

…is to provide supplemental food and referral assistance to those in need in the Holly Springs Community.

Every week

Food Distribution

Thursdays, 2-5 p.m.

Need food assistance? Visit the Holly Springs Food Cupboard Thursday afternoons, 2-5 p.m. Please bring a picture ID and one other printed confirmation of your address (for example, a utility bill).

Donate Food to the Cupboard

Mondays, 9-11 a.m. & Thursdays, 12-5 p.m.

The Holly Springs Food Cupboard accepts food donations every week. If you have food that you want to deliver at other times, you can take it to one of our community drop-off sites. Click here for a list of locations where you can leave food donations. Please do not leave food outside the cupboard.

Food Garden Summer Workdays

Thursdays & Saturdays during the summer, 9 a.m.

Lend a hand, and we can teach you a new gardening skill.

Help us help others.

“I invite you to join us – sorting food, filling bags, carrying bags, working in the garden, organizing food drives, transporting food, raising funds to pay the bills … There are so many ways to help. I can’t promise that it will be easy – but I do promise you’ll be blessed.”
