WHAT SERVICES DO WE OFFER?
Catholic Harvest Food Pantry distributes food monthly to over 850 families in our community who experience food insecurity through weekday Food Distributions and Mobile Pantry food distribution. Mobile Pantry runs reach households in York County who are without nearby food resources.
In addition to emergency food, we offer our clients other services as well.
We provide personal care items such as toothpaste, soap, and diapers.
Last year, in 2022, a record 1,600 households received a turkey and all the trimmings for a complete family Thanksgiving dinner to be able to prepare and enjoy at home with their family.
We hold a smaller Christmas meal program and other holidays as allowed.
Clients’ children receive a “birthday kit” that includes cake mix, icing & candles.
Those needing assistance with food should call 717-846-8571, option 1, Monday through Friday between 9-11 am. Messages left after these hours will be returned the next business day.
