For more than 20 years, the Community Cupboard food bank, and other Upper Valley MEND services like their low-cost thrift store, have operated out of space owned by the city of Leavenworth on 14th Street. However, at the end of 2019 the current lease ends, and the City plans to use that space for its growing public works operations across the street, including an expansion of the wastewater treatment plant. The programs of the Community Cupboard will need to find a new home. Dan Langager talked with MEND’s Executive Director Kaylin Bettinger and Community Cupboard Program Manager Bob Mark to learn about what happens next.

For more than 20 years, the Community Cupboard has provided important community services at their space at 219 14th street. These have included a food bank, a thrift store offering low-cost clothing and household items, and emergency assistance services for families in crisis situations. During this time, the City of Leavenworth has generously provided the space free of charge for these activities. However, at the end of 2019 the current lease ends, and the City plans to use that space to accommodate its growing public works operations across the street. The programs of the Community Cupboard will need to find a new home.
