Open Cupboard Food Pantry, Clinton, NJ

Thrift Shop



Open Cupboard Food Pantry has a thrift shop which helps to support the Pantry through its sales of clothing, household items, books, jewelry, DVDs, VHS tapes, and CDs.

All proceeds from the thrift shop benefit the Pantry by defraying operating expenses and purchasing groceries as needed.

















We accept donations of clean, gently-used or new items during our regular hours of operation.
