Basic Needs

In partnership with communities, local vendors, organizations, and those we serve, the Dover Foxcroft Area Food Cupboard’s mission is to provide healthy supplemental and emergency food to area households experiencing food insecurity in the least restrictive and most respectful way possible, and to provide opportunities for learning that lead to increased self-sufficiency.

Success Stories

This is a letter we received from a client and is presented as written by the client.

I wanted to thank you all for your amazing generosity and kindness.  Truly – I am at a loss for words to accurately express how grateful I am for the assistance provided through the food bank.  I worked all of my life-so when I became disabled I found myself “falling through the cracks,” literally having to choose between heat, medications, and food.  Food insecurity is very real and very humbling.  Not only is the food provided critical for survival but other items (soap, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.) have an invaluable impact on people like me.  These items restore some of the human dignity that is lost in the struggle to survive.  Again, thank you!
