Charlotte’s Cupboard is open to everyone.

The rising cost of groceries is hitting many in the pocketbook, especially now with the holiday season here.

“There is such a need. I don’t think people realize the need that is in our area,” Deloris Coleman, event coordinator for non-profit Charlotte’s Cupboard, told Port Arthur Newsmedia in 2022. “And with our elders, you make a choice between medicine and good, nutritional food.”

In 2022, more than 200 families received a bag of groceries with enough food for a Thanksgiving to feed four as part of annual Thanksgiving Drive Through Pantry.
