Food Pantries

Union-Snyder CAA administers the following four food pantries in Union and Snyder Counties (scroll down for details on locations and schedule):

  • Lewisburg Food Pantry (Eastern Union County)

  • Mifflinburg Food Pantry (Western Union County)

  • Loaves & Fishes (East of Route 104, Selinsgrove)

  • Five Barley Loaves (West of Route 104, McClure)

Customers must meet the following criteria to receive food from these food pantries*:

  • Must be an adult to register. An adult household member must register at the food pantry. Registration information will be updated once a year, unless there is a major income or household member change. Customer is responsible for reporting any changes to the Food Pantry Coordinator.

  • Must be income eligible.* Household must be income eligible based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture poverty guidelines. Please call us at (570) 374-0181 for information on income eligibility.

  • Must be registered at only one pantry. The customer/household can only attend the food pantry in the location that he/she lives. The customer can only be registered at one food pantry. See below for pantry locations and schedule.

*NOTE: Due to COVID-19, Food Pantry income eligibility has been changed to serve anyone whose income has been effected by the pandemic. No pre-registration required.

Emergency Basic Needs Delivery Program

CAA believes that food insecurity in our region isn’t as much connected to access of food but rather its distribution. CAA’s Basic Needs Delivery Program extends our emergency food and personal hygiene services to people who are in need but cannot make it into our office due to physical limitations of transportation, mobility, and childcare.

CAA’s Basic Needs Delivery Program is intended to help Union and Snyder county residents living with low income in emergency situations in between scheduled food pantries or distributions. This includes people who are:

  • Vulnerable to COVID-19

  • Elderly

  • Without childcare

  • Without transportation

 

Deliveries are made on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. The cut-off for delivery is noon on the day prior to delivery (e.g. Monday or Wednesday) to allow 24 hours to pack and organize delivery. Deliveries will be made between 4-5 PM. The driver will call the customer when on their way to their location.

 

Urgent needs will be processed on a case-by-case basis.

 

If you can safely leave your home, we ask that you call 1-800-692-7462 to learn more about signing up for SNAP or visiting our Food Resources Calendar.
