BREWER – The Brewer Christian Food Cupboard has selected 71 Center Street in Brewer as its new home. The Food Cupboard will complete the move to this new location by the second week of August. Until then, the Cupboard will remain open at the current location in the basement of St. Patrickâ€™s Episcopal Church at 21 Holyoke Street. The Cupboard is open10am to noon on Wednesday and Friday.
The Brewer Christian Food Cupboard currently serves in excess of 600 people in the Brewer, Holden, Eddington, Dedham, and Orrington. Since its inception in the early 1980â€™s, the Brewer Christian Food Cupboard has operated in the basement of St. Patrickâ€™s Episcopal Church on Holyoke Street in Brewer. Due to an increase demand for the Cupboardâ€™s services, the Board of Directorâ€™s sought to find a new location that met three basic criteria. The site had to be on or near a bus line, ground level, and handicap accessible. With the unanimous approval of the Brewer Planning Board on Monday the Food Cupboard now prepares to move its physical location and to move forward in supporting the citizens of Greater Brewer. A grand opening event and food drive will be held in August.
