UWPV Opens the Holyoke Community Cupboard


United Way of Pioneer Valley (UWPV) is pleased to announce the grand opening of our Holyoke Community Cupboard on Thursday, November 2nd, at 164 Race Street in Holyoke from 10:30 AM until 12:00 Noon. The result of a partnership among Holyoke Community College (HCC), the HCC Culinary Arts Institute, and United Way of Pioneer Valley, this new food pantry will have capacity to serve many Holyoke residents, as well as our neighbors in nearby towns.

The Holyoke Community Cupboard is located within the Holyoke Community College Culinary Arts Institute building on Race Street, an area identified as a food desert in the city. The Cupboard represents the culmination of a long history of local non-profit organizations working in tandem to serve our local community.

UWPV and HCC are excited to use the Culinary Arts Institute space to build collaborative solutions to food insecurity that puts people first.

For questions or to offer support for the Cupboard, please contact Lee Drewitz at ldrewitz@uwpv.org
