Emergency Food Pantry


The Emergency Food Pantry at Christ Lutheran Church first opened its doors in 1981 and has evolved since that time.  Individuals and families are supported with groceries and hygiene products.

The Pantry can be contacted through the church office at 724-981-2070.

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.


The pantry is a member of the Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County that is located in Sharon.  Food is purchased from the Warehouse, while retail stores provide the hygiene products and food not available from the Warehouse.  Income and donations for the pantry come from the congregation.  All of our staff are volunteers.
