Thanks for stopping by. This is the brand-new blog of the Prescott Community Cupboard. If you’ve found this, hopefully you have check out a few pages of our website and know who we are and what we do. If you’re still not sure, take a peek at our About page and any others that interest you.
This blog is beginning for several reasons. First of all, we have been in Prescott for a very long time–almost 40 years! But we have long been considered a “hidden resource” for community members. However, we are changing tactics and branching out. Community resources are not meant to be hidden. They should be known among as many community members and organizations as possible so that those members who might wish to use our resources know about them. Another great reason is that we are not just a food bank handing out groceries to households in need–we are a place where community members can volunteer and make a difference right here in Prescott. We are a bank where community members can take their extra food, keeping resources local. And we are a good starting point for those in Prescott who wish to better understand issues of food insecurity in their own backyard.
So, for those who have stumbled upon us, no matter your background or location, thanks for reading through–every small action you take makes us a more visible and therefore more viable community resource for Prescott, Arizona.
