United Way provides food to Springfield and Chicopee families

Feed A Family, a program of United Way, took place at The Chicopee Cupboard and The Springfield Cupboard during the week of Thanksgiving.

Families received all the fixings for a full Thanksgiving meal, complete with gravy. An enormous thank you to the many volunteers, including the UMass Men’s Basketball team, who helped us prepare and distribute the bags of food.

Our pantries can still use you support to help keep our operations running and our shelves full. Please visit and click on “donate.”


Chicopee Cupboard Has A New Home

Chicopee, MA (8/16/2022)— The United Way of Pioneer Valley has expanded their footprint into downtown Chicopee with the Chicopee Cupboard that will help feed local families.

The new United Way Cupboard on 226 Exchange Street is just a short distance from where the old Cupboard was located on Center Street but the larger area provides a world of difference for the many families in the Pioneer Valley who desperately need this help.
