The Ambler and North Hills Cupboards predominantly serve families that are at or below the Montgomery County poverty level. We assist families living in the following zip codes: 19002, 19025, 19034, 19031, 19048, 19075, 19422, 19424, 19437, 19477, and 19038.
The Ambler Cupboard offers a bi-monthly supplemental food order to their clients whereas the North Hills Cupboard (19038 zip code only) serves their clients weekly. We currently have around 400 active families that we help.
We welcome any local families in our service area to come and learn more about us. We offer food, clothing, holiday meals and programs as well as various other programs throughout the year and financial assistance when available.
The Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard offers food, clothing, employment assistance/job help/resume building, medical referrals, housing referrals and emergency financial assistance. We are open 5 days a week from 9am to 2pm Monday through Friday with food and clothing distributions held on Mondays and Wednesdays.
We are a 501 C (3) non-profit food pantry located in Montgomery County. For over 40 years, the Cupboard has relied on the generosity of the people in the communities we serve. We do not receive federal funding and raise all of our operating costs thru the support of local fundraising efforts.
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.
