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.

Join us for the 30th Anniversary of Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, Sunday, September 20, 2-4 pm, 315 Red Cross St. We will have a historical exhibit and thank-you event for friends and volunteers. Please bring 1 non-perishable food item. For more information, email /, call 484-885-3037, or view our wish list.
