Prescott Community Cupboard Celebrates Almost 50 Years of Fighting Food Insecurity


The past year has been a banner one for Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank (PCCFB). After working out of two rented offices, the organization tripled its size by relocating to its own 3,000-square-foot building on West Hillside Avenue last May.

She’s seen it in action as a volunteer leader with United Way of Yavapai County.

Often the clients pay it forward, volunteering for the organizations that gave them a hand [...]
