Because of COVID-19, Food Bank volunteers will be taking extra precautions for everyone’s safety. If you would like to receive food, please be prepared to stay in your vehicle. Someone will assist you.

To make the distribution run smoothly, we ask that people time their arrival in the following way: those whose last names begin with A through F, please arrive at 9 a.m.; G through L at 9:30 a.m.; M through R at 10 a.m.; S through Z at 10:30 a.m. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding.

The St. Paul’s Food Pantry is a ministry of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, in partnership with the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. It is a privilege to lend a helping hand up to our neighbors during these difficult times.
