St. Paul’s Food Pantry has been serving clients since September of 1982. We are currently serving about 225 – 250 families a month.  The food that is distributed comes mostly from York County Food Bank and Central Penn Food Bank.  In addition, we have established relationships with Panera Bread for bread and baked goods, and Hill-N- Dale Egg Farm for fresh eggs.  We also value the donations made by our members of either food or money.  Also, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of York can be found working in their garden each year to provide our pantry with fresh garden produce such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, collard greens, etc.

The pantry operates totally with volunteers.  Our largest cadre of volunteers are the folks who help with distribution each Tuesday morning, 9:45 – 11:30. Other volunteer opportunities include picking up from Panera Monday evenings, picking up from Hill-N-Dale Egg Farm once a month, helping with deliveries Thursday mornings twice a month, helping to restock the distribution area, and learning to work with the food banks to order food and maintain inventory.  New volunteers are always welcome.  Thank you Pantry Volunteers!

Should you wish to volunteer in any way, please feel free to contact one of the following:

Teresa Rohrbaugh – oversees Tuesday distributions and Panera

Janet & Larry Moore – helps with ordering and maintaining inventory, deliveries, Hill-N-Dale Egg Farm

Patty Snyder – helps with ordering and maintaining inventory, deliveries, restocking distribution room
