The mission of The Stewartstown Food Pantry is to love our neighbors by providing access to nutritious food to anyone experiencing food insecurity or financial hardship. Our intent is to treat each person with respect, dignity, and grace; provide opportunity to increase self-sufficiency, and instill hope. Our goal is for the pantry to have a  meaningful, enduring impact.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.

How We Serve:

Food distributions are held every Saturday, 10AM to 12 noon
at the SUMC overflow parking lot, located next to 10 Church St.
 Anyone desiring assistance can receive food.
Those in need can enter the pantry and choose the foods, as well as cleaning and personal items, that are most useful to them.  Appointments are recommended to minimize wait time.  To make an appointment, fill out the contact form below or

How to Help

Food Donations - An easy way to help is to give unexpired, non-perishable food directly to the Pantry.  See our “Wish List” below for staples that we provide or items that we can use.
Monetary Donations - Partnerships with local food banks allow us to purchase food at tremendous savings.  Each $1 donated can provide four to six pounds of food for those in need.
Volunteer - Volunteers are needed to collect, sort, pack, and distribute food, as well as keep our facility clean.   As our pantry evolves, our volunteer needs are changing. For more information fill out the contact form below. Or sign up for a time to volunteer.
