We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that has been meeting the needs of local individuals and families whose incomes fall at or below the Federal Government Poverty Guidelines for over 40 years.
The Cupboard was founded by Mattie N. Dixon, a longtime resident of Ambler and a true visionary. In response to learning that people in her community were going hungry, she started serving families out of her basement in 1973. As word spread of Mattie’s generosity and others joined her efforts, she moved to several other homes for her service, including Zion Baptist Church, Church of the Brethren, and 57 Butler Ave. In 2004, with help from the community and the Ambler Rotary Club, Mrs. Dixon was able to purchase our current building on Main Street.
