United Way of Pioneer Valley’s Chicopee Cupboard Moves to New Location

SPRINGFIELD — United Way of Pioneer Valley (UWPV) will host a ‘new home’ celebration for the Chicopee Cupboard Food Pantry today, Aug. 16 from 11 a.m. to noon at 226 Exchange St. in Chicopee. Anyone interested in learning more about the fight against food insecurity is welcome to tour the expanded facility.

The Chicopee Cupboard, powered by the United Way of Pioneer Valley, provides shelf-stable food, fresh produce and dairy items, and frozen food to anyone in need. These items are available thanks to the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, grants, and donations.

“We are honored to be able to battle any and all food insecurity in the great city of Chicopee,” said Paul Mina, president and CEO of the United Way of Pioneer Valley. “Our team is eager to provide our clients the best services possible.”
