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 refer to the chart below for income eligibility information.

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 Mondays and Wednesdays. The cut-off for delivery is noon on the day prior to delivery (e.g. Sunday or Tuesday) to allow 24 hours to pack and organize delivery. Deliveries will most likely be made between 4-5 PM. CAA will contact the customer to confirm date and time before a delivery will be made.

 

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.
