    Community Cupboard

    Our Community Cupboard provides discrete access to food and personal care products to clients and vulnerable members of our community. CCAs and volunteers bring relevant and needed items directly to clients while our partnership with Nova Scotia Provincial Housing Agency allows for our community cupboards in Senior Housing buildings in Victoria County to remain stocked with fresh and shelf stable items as well. VCHSS Community Connections is grateful to local foodbanks and supportive funders for ensuring the continuation of this important service.
