Food Banks, Food Pantries & Food Assistance

If you are in need of food Berks Coalition to End Homelessness has started an emergency food pantry. This pantry will provide you and your family with a box of non-perishable food that can help until you are able to go to your local pantry for more. To take advantage of this pantry just come to our office located at 831 Walnut Street anytime between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm.

The Greater Berks Food Bank has changed its name to HELPING HARVEST. To find a pantry near you call them at
