Food Pantry

The People In Need Food Pantry has been assisting Delaware County residents for over 38 years! 

Nutritious food packages are provided to the household up to once a month. These food packages are sized for the family being served and have been designed to comply with the USDA nutritional guidelines.

Clients may walk in during our regular business hours or make an appointment to take advantage of our Choice Pantry option.  In the Choice Pantry, our clients can select which items they prefer from the choices available.

If the client prefers, an appointment can be made and the food order will be selected and packed with care by our trained volunteers.  The order will then be ready for quick pick up at the time of the appointment.

In order to promote a healthier diet for all of our Delaware County residents please consider donating items that are whole grain products, are low in sodium, low fat, or reduced sugar.
