Great Valley Food Cupboard needs your help!

If you are out shopping yourself and you are willing to buy something for the local food pantry – the best suggestion is to buy a bag of the foods below and then that bag will just be turned directly over to a family who comes to the pantry.  They need all bags to be basically the same to make this easiest.  We practiced with a Trader Joe type of bag and this is what should all fit:

 If you are able to find and get any cleaning supplies, paper towels, or TP as well – keep them separate but they’d take them as well.  All bags should be dropped off right in the vestibule of the church from 9-1 on Mondays through Thursdays.  IF the church is locked then leave all bags under the overhang.  Someone is in and out each day.  Thanks!

The Great Valley Food Cupboard is located at 945 North Valley Forge Road in Devon.  It’s in the Scott Building which is the white building next to the Baptist Church in the Great Valley, not far from Gateway Shopping Center.

 

 

The Great Valley Food Cupboard - Who We Are - Whom We Serve

In these difficult economic times, there are local families that struggle to put food on their tables each day.  The Chester County Food Bank supports a number of food pantries in the county, but there has been only one in Tredyffrin and Easttown until now.  For a number of years, Trinity Presbyterian Church in Berwyn (Easttown) has hosted the Caring Cupboard, as part of the official Chester County Food Bank program.  Now the Baptist Church in the Great Valley (Tredyffrin) is hosting one as well.     

The Great Valley Food Cupboard, located at 945 North Valley Forge Road in Devon, provides food to local families needing an extra supply each month. It is open each Tuesday from 11am-2pm and the second Wednesday of each month, from 6pm-8pm. Any T/E or Great Valley families needing support should call the church office at 610-688-5445 for more details on signing up.  

As you can imagine – filling the shelves for a food cupboard is a challenge!  Donations from the community are critical to the success of any food cupboard. All types of non-perishable foods are needed.   If you are involved with a group or neighborhood that would be willing to run an occasional food drive, or if you are just someone wanting to help out, please contact the Great Valley Food Cupboard through the church office at 610-688-5445. All offers of support are appreciated.
