What is the Emergency Cupboard?
The United Neighbors’ Emergency Cupboard provides food and toiletries to the unhoused, veterans, immigrants, and other populations; and is stocked with food that is shelf stable, nutritious, belly filling, and easy to prepare, as well as a variety of personal hygiene items, including menstruation products.
All clients are encouraged to visit a local food pantry before visiting our cupboard. A list of local food pantries and soup kitchens can be found in the Greater Fall River Resource Guide, in print and online, at www.unfr.org/resources.
The Cupboard is open for clients by appointment only; call the United Neighbors office at 508-324-7900 to schedule an appointment or book online here.
How You Can Help
The cupboard relies on the generosity of individuals, civic organizations, and foundation grants. Funds and in-kind donations are tax deductible as a contribution to a 501c3 through our fiscal partnership with Greater Fall River RE-Creation.

UNFR's Emergency Cupboard was created to fill the gaps for families that receive food at food pantries. Our Cupboard allows folks to access food and toiletries within the 30-day window of restrictions from the pantries and we do not require any immigration documentation or proof of residency or earnings.
In addition, our Emergency Cupboard is open by appointment so we can accommodate clients that need weekend or evening hours.
