A partnership with the Lawrence Township Trustee’s Office
Serving Lawrence Township families in need of food assistance.
Community Cupboard of Lawrence is a food pantry that serves Lawrence Township residents in need of assistance. Founded in 2014 by the Lawrence Township Trustee’s Office and operated since 2016 as an outreach of Community Health Network, Community Cupboard of Lawrence provides healthier food options for guests, and relieves the strain experienced by food pantries throughout Central Indiana.
Community Cupboard of Lawrence works with local food banks to source the majority of its product. In addition, food acquired through food drives and individual donations is critical to maintaining sufficient inventory. Community Cupboard of Lawrence welcomes both food and monetary donations to further its mission. For information on either, please contact the pantry coordinator at 317-355-7399.
