What is the Holly Springs Food Cupboard?

Here's a little info about the Holly Springs Food Cupboard: Their mission is to "provide food and assistance to those in need in the Holly Springs community." This year they grow from a 3-room +kitchen house to a huge 4th room addition and a large, very productive garden in the back. Contributions continue to come pouring in from food drives and organizations wishing to help the poor and needy in our area. Last week alone, they cleared 1000 pounds of food! The Cupboard is open for volunteers on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. Training is required beforehand except for working in the garden.
