The Southampton Community Cupboard is our town's food pantry. It provides supplemental food to those in need with discretion and compassion.


With the help of an 'angel' we will be having monthly raffles. When you bring in a non-perishable donation to the library, you will get a raffle ticket. The next drawing is on September 24th! Thanks to our angel and to Tractor Supply for your donation.

And, back by popular demand...
