Program Guidelines & Requirements

The Cupboard is open to anyone in Ambler and the surrounding towns we serve (see zip codes on front page of website).  In order to become a client, please call 215-628-3002 to determine if your zip code falls within our service area.  Upon verification, please visit us on a Monday or Wednesday for an interview between 9:00-11:00 am.  Please bring your photo id, along with proof of address and all sources of income for your household.

We ask new potential clients to let the volunteers know it is your first visit so the appropriate paperwork can be filled out.  Please bring clean reusable bags for our packers to use for your food order.  You will need to alert our volunteers if you have any dietary restrictions.

We fill food orders in order of clients signing in.  While you are waiting, you may choose any produce (and/or other products we place outside) for your household.

Due to CDC restrictions, we are handling all client activities outside in our parking lot area.  Please wear a mask at all times and be aware of keeping 6 ft between you and others while you are waiting.  We appreciate you helping us keep you, our volunteers and staff and other clients as safe as possible.
