Assisting residents from the Canonsburg - Houston area, food pantry distribution occurs every third Saturday of the month from 9:00 AM until Noon. This wonderful ministry provides supplemental food resources to those families in our area who are in need. We serve 120 families monthly on average. Toys, clothes and household items are also made available to families.
Clients must provide proof of income and residency plus social security information to qualify for assistance.
We thank many area schools, churches, companies and area stores who donate food to the pantry throughout the year. We also appreciate the U.S. Postal Service who holds a large food drive in May donating over 15,000 pounds of collected food!
Because we serve so many families, many volunteers are needed to make this outreach successful. Over 40 volunteers are needed monthly to prepare and carry out distribution day, and so many more are needed throughout the year to help with sorting, collecting, delivering and working with clients. New volunteers are always welcome and serving is a great way to for high school students to fill their community service hours.
