Christ Lutheran Church
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 is a member of the Community Food Warehouse of Mercer County that is located in Sharon. Food is purchased from the Warehouse, while purchases at retail stores provide food not available from the Warehouse. Our income for the pantry comes from our congregation, while physical donations come from the congregation, businesses, and organizations. All of our staff are volunteers. Donations and Volunteers are always welcome.
