The number of families we can serve is limited, but we are usually able to register new clients from January through October of each year. We require a valid photo ID, proof of residency and verification of income at the time of registration.

As part of our pantry, we offer a Christmas program that provides gifts for children twelve years old and under. The children must live full time in your household and be on your registration to qualify. Information about our Christmas program is provided to our clients at our first distribution in October and all Christmas gift requests must be returned to us at the second October distribution for processing.

Our pantry welcomes new volunteers to help us serve our clients. Volunteers are needed the Friday mornings of our distributions, and also the Thursday mornings prior to distribution days for set up.

If you have any questions about our services, please call our food pantry line at 724-877-4171 to speak with a volunteer, or stop in the Guild Hall located in our church basement during our regular hours of operation.

The distribution of food is always the first and third Fridays of each month unless otherwise noted. If you have any questions please feel free to call the Food Pantry phone line at 724-877-4171.
