Peter's Pantry is a food hamper program organized by volunteers at the church and funded solely by the generous gifts of our congregation through non-perishable food items and monetary donations to the Benevolent Fund. Peter’s Pantry has an average of four hamper requests each week during the school year. That’s about 1,000 cans of soup, 500 kg. of flour, and 200 boxes of pancake mix, cereal, and hamburger helper per year. Talk about a huge grocery bill!
As requests come in from School Social Workers or other Resource Workers in P.A., our amazing volunteer team gets to work packing the hampers with the donated items as well as going out and purchasing a few perishables including, milk, eggs, bread, and fresh fruit/veggies. The hampers are then picked up and delivered to the families in need.
If you would like to make a donation of a non perishable food item check out the ideas list below for the most up to date list of the items most needed by the Pantry. Then you can drop of your items at the church during office hours or on Sunday morning. It is such an easy way to make a big impact in our city, one family at a time.
