BEGINNING JANUARY 2021 WE WILL BE CHANGING OUR ROUTINE FOR FOOD PICK-UP. WE WILL CONTINUE AS A DRIVE-THRU ONLY, AND YOU WILL DO THE FOLLOWING:
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR TRUNK IS EMPTY FOR EASY LOADING.
(IF YOU ARE DISABLED AND CANNOT WALK INTO THE CUPBOARD, PLEASE CALL THE CUPBOARD WHEN YOU ARE IN LINE AND ACCOMMODATION WILL BE MADE FOR YOU TO RECEIVE YOUR FOOD.)
We hope that everyone is taking the proper precautions to avoid getting the COVID 19 virus. In order to protect both our clients and our courageous volunteers who are willing to continue to come to our Cupboard to help those in the community who are in need of food, we are taking the following steps to ensure everyone’s safety.
• Our building is on lockdown and will continue through the end of the year .
• All clients and others in need of food are to drive to the side door, open your trunk, and a volunteer will place the food products in your trunk for you. No one is to exit their car.
• If you are not a registered client of OAFC, you have the following options:
OAFC is determined to continue to serve our community as long as we can. If any of our volunteers show symptoms and are diagnosed with COVID-19, we will be forced to temporarily close our doors until further notice. For this reason we ask that you follow these instructions carefully.

Hunger has many different faces. Women, children, mothers, fathers, infants and the elderly. Hunger doesn't discriminate. It doesn't care where you live or what you look like. Many hard working people living week to week are just a paycheck away from needing help. No one should ever go hungry but many people do. That's why we do what we do. We are a 100% volunteer organization dedicated to feeding hunger.
Help us help others. Please support your local food cupboard.
The sole mission of the Octorara Area Food Cupboard is to provide food support to qualifying individuals and families in the greater Octorara area.
Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why we need donations year-round. Conduct a Food Drive at work or in your neighborhood. We can provide helpful tips to make your food drive a success.
Working together with the Chester County Food Bank, Parkesburg Point, Local Churches, Businesses and Residents helping those in need.
