To serve the community by extending a helping hand.
The Whitehall Food Pantry was established in 1974 at St Stephen's Church and has been serving Whitehall residents in need ever since.
About 50% of the food supplies are obtained from the Second Harvest Food Bank (state & federal grants based on the number of recipients).
Second Harvest serves six counties in Northeastern PA distributing over four million pounds of food each year through 84 food pantries like ours.
The other 50% comes as the result of a generous community effort with the active help of Whitehall churches; such as Faith Lutheran, St John's Lutheran (Fullerton), First Presbyterian (Hokendauqua), St John's UCC (Mickley), and St John's UCC (Fullerton), as well as individuals from other churches who both drop off food and volunteer.
Civic groups and area businesses play a large part in our support, as well.
Every Monday morning, Whitehall Food Bank volunteers pick up several cases of from the Whitehall Wal-Mart. Other Whitehall businesses also donate food when they can: Weis Markets, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Bone Fish Grill. Entenmann's Bakery in South Allentown provides bread and desserts.
Many volunteers across our community give of their time which is the significant factor for survival of the food pantry.
The Whitehall Food Pantry Services about 125 different families each
month and about 650 over the course of a year. Some of our families just need one-time emergency aid while others suffer continuing situations.
