The Cupboard

Providing Food Without Cost

The Cupboard food pantry is open at Hope Ankeny every Friday from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm. Guests may enter through our lower-level “Harbor” entrance to shop for essentials and personal care items twice each month. Volunteers and donations are always welcome. Sign up to volunteer either on Fridays to assist guests as they shop, or throughout the week with our many pickups and deliveries as part of our food rescue program! Free haircuts will also be offered to those who’d like them on the first Friday of the month at The Cupboard from 1:00-4:00 pm.
