The New Pantry

From a closet, to the basement of a cottage, all the way to a spacious new facility, the Elmhurst-Yorkfield Food Pantry has come a long way in 33 years.  Thanks to more than 500 donors, the new 2,500-square-foot building is debt-free.  The new facility has separate areas for client shopping and food storage and the building complies with local building codes and ADA accessibility standards.  A bright reception area provides warmth and a place to sit for clients.

We thank the generous community of friends, neighbors, and donors for its unwavering support of the pantry!
