Description of Service
Who We Are
St, Peterâs Episcopal Church has many outreach programs, one of them being the Food Pantry. The Food Pantry at St. Peterâs was started in 1999 as a result of seeing a need in the community to serve people without passing judgment on their situation. We accept all clients that come to the Food Pantry.
The Food Pantry clients come from Phoenixville and the surrounding areas. Ten years ago when the Food Pantry first opened its doors, we served roughly 20 families. Today we serve 50 to 60 families with approximately 22 children. During the 2008 Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays we served just over 100 families. As the economy worsens, we are seeing new clients every Saturday that we are open.
The food for the pantry is supplied from four primary resources:
Food from the government is received on a monthly basis
Food from the state is received on a monthly basis
The people of St. Peterâs parish supply both food and money donations
Genuardiâs Food Store provides bread and bakery items
Hours of Operation
The Food Pantry is open every other Saturday 9-11am throughout the year.
