The Paragliding Community of Leavenworth and Cashmere, WA has chosen the Community Cupboard (Local Food Bank) to be their recipient of charitable giving for the 2019-2020 flying seasons. 

Formed as a food bank in 1983, the Community Cupboard has grown both in size and services over the years. Currently located in a space donated by the City of Leavenworth, the Cupboard now includes a food bank and Emergency Family Assistance services. In 2018, the thrift store that had been housed at Community Cupboard was moved to its own entity, Das Thrift Haus, a few doors away. This move made room for the Community Cupboard food bank to expand to a choice model, where food bank clients use points to shop for food each month. The food bank provides residents of the Upper Valley with much needed food provisions each month, and is one of the few food banks in the state open 6 days a week. Finally, Emergency Family Assistance services through the Cupboard help local residents in need throughout the year with emergency shelter, rent & utility assistance, fuel and transportation assistance, and referrals. We are only able to offer these services through the generous donations of food, thrift store goods, volunteer hours and finances from the community. The programs of the Community Cupboard are truly an outpouring of community spirit!
