The Food Bank at First Presbyterian Strasburg supports basic nutritional needs of families and individuals in and around Strasburg.

If you are new to the Food Bank, you will be asked to complete a brief intake form providing contact information. The pantry will provide a reusable tote bag, which we ask you to bring whenever you shop. Shoppers may select their own items. In addition to groceries, we now offer dairy products, bread, personal care items, paper goods, and, on occasion, meat and other useful items.

Please consider supporting this ministry through donations of food, money, and/or time.

  • Food donations can be deposited in the labeled box near the Welcome Desk. If you need help to unload items from your car, please call ahead, 717-687-6030. If you are able to donate perishable items such as eggs, meat, or produce, please call the church office (717.687-6030) or email jastum710@comcast.net first to discuss your donation.
  • Place monetary donations in an envelope marked “Food Bank” (pre-labeled envelopes are available in the pews, or use one of your own). These can be placed in the offering plate during worship or delivered to the church office. Checks should be made out to First Presbyterian Church of Strasburg, with “Food Bank” written in the memo line.
  • To volunteer your time, please contact the church office at 717-687-6030 or email jastum710@comcast.net. Volunteers are needed to shop, sort and stock food, fill bags, monitor expiration dates, and help clients.
