Jackson Hole’s Community Food Pantry

Mission Statement: The Jackson Cupboard provides essential, nutritious food for our community members in need.

Nuestra Mision Es:  Jackson Cupboard ofrece alimentos esenciales y nutritivos para nuestros miembros de la comunidad que lo necesitan.

The Jackson Cupboard is a food pantry that opened its doors in 2001 and has been serving the Jackson community since that time.  It is a non-political, non-religious organization. Our food bank operates off of 100% private donation; we receive no government funding. Last year 95% of monetary donations were used to purchase food for our clientele.  In 2017, we served 5,000 people from the Jackson, WY area. We are grateful to the Jackson Hole community and grocery stores for the generosity they have provided.  All client information is strictly confidential.

Free Food Friday! Every Friday 10:30 am – 3:00 pm
Please help Teton County reduce food waste. The public is invited to help us reduce food waste by collecting perishable foods that our clients were not able to use. Grab whatever you will eat, and keep it out of the landfill!
