This program was established in response to increased visits from neighbours seeking assistance to meet their basic needs. Poverty continues to be a significant challenge in downtown Kitchener. Neighbourhood access to free food and warm clothing is key, since transportation is a major hurdle for low-income residents.
The goal of the Community Cupboard at Historic St. Paul’s Lutheran Church is to meet the basic needs of individuals and families seeking assistance by providing non-perishable food, clothing, household items, and children’s toys & books.
