How to Get Help
1002 Ridge Road in the VanIngen Court building
Each Tuesday evening at 7pm there is a Food Distribution held at the Food Cupboard, 1002 Ridge Road, in the Court building.
Sign in begins at 6:30pm and the Distribution begins promptly at 7pm. Please bring a picture ID, a piece of mail with your name & Webster address, and your own grocery bags. *Please note: You may not enter the building before 6:30pm!
After a Webster resident registers by confidentially showing their household income and expense information, they are welcome to come on a weekly basis for this food that can supplement their own resources.
It is recommended you arrive by 6:45 PM, bring a picture ID and recent mail with your Webster name and address.
There is NO cost for these services.
All food is donated by Webster businesses. Currently food is received from Hegedorn's, Wegmans (Holt Road & Eastway), BJ's, Ridge Donut, Schutt's, and Panera Bread.
Many Webster residents live on fixed incomes. When an emergency arises, perhaps an unexpected home or car repair, an unforeseen medical expense, or a sick child may force an unpaid sick day - the Webster Community Chest Food Cupboard can provide non-persishable food when the money for groceries is needed elsewhere.
The Food Cupboard is located at 1002 Ridge Road in the Webster Court building and is open by appointment only. For one time assistance a resident needs to show valid proof of Webster residency and the emergency that brings them to the Cupboard. For appointments, call 671-2060.
Each Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas, fresh and non-perishable food is packed by volunteers into bags or boxes depending on family size. This food can be taken home and prepared so each eligible Webster family that has registered can share in a holiday meal. This fresh food is purchased by funds from the Community Chest and the non-perishable food is donated by members of the Council of Churches, Trident Precision Manufacturing, or taken from the Food Cupboard.
The Medical Equipment Loan Cupboard located at 985 Ebner Drive is now closed. You may borrow equipment or make donations to the Webster Masonic Service Bureau, located at 979 Bay Road. Please call them at 671-9730 for their hours and items available.
The Webster Community Chest can provide several types of assistance to individuals and families in need.
Please call the Benefits counselor at 671-2060 for eligibility and/or registration requirements.
