In the 20 years since its founding, the Peters Township Food Pantry has served between 55 and 65 local families each month. These families include the elderly, the unemployed and the underemployed. The families we serve must be located within a specific geographical area and meet certain governmental economic guidelines.
Various churches, including St. Benedict the Abbot, have housed the Food Pantry over the years. Currently, we are located at Peace Lutheran Church on 107 Carol Drive, McMurray, PA (near Route 19). Distribution is at 8:30 am on the second Friday of each month. We need volunteers for about two hours to assist our clients with the process. We also have 'set-up' at 2:00 pm on the day before distribution, also requiring about two hours.
If you can find it in your heart to provide time, food, or funds to keep this very worthwhile and needed outreach ministry going, do not hesitate to call Susan Brooks at 724.942.4287. All this ministry requires is a willingness to volunteer and smile!
