We are a food cupboard in West Chester, PA, run entirely by dedicated volunteers. We are committed to provide healthy food and other essential items to people in need, such as fresh produce, fish, meats, dairy items, non-perishable food, personal care and household items. We are serving any PA resident in need of food until the end of 2022. We serve over 1,000 households every month in our facility and at local sites. Getting food here is safe, easy, and friendly.
Donations are welcomed any morning (except Sundays) between the hours of 8:30 and 11:30 am. Come to the door at the rear of the building.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
