Since Dining at the White House was launched on September 24, 2013, DWH-associated events have raised over $10,000 for local charities.
The Hempfield Area Food Pantry — Helping to feed needy families throughout the winter months
The Hempfield Area Food Pantry, Inc. is a non-profit ministry housed in Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Landisville, PA, dedicated to serving those in need of supplemental food who live in the Hempfield School District.
The pantry is solely funded by donations and grants and is completely led and run by volunteers. It is a partner agency of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
Demand Increases While Support Decreases
In the period from April to July in this year alone, the number of families seeking assistance rose nearly 21%. In 2013, the Pantry has served 278 youths, 344 adults, 97 seniors and a total of 719 clients.
Funding for the food pantry’s programs have been severely curtailed this year, while additional demand has come from people impacted by the cuts in Food Stamp programs.
The Harvest Festival event held on Oct. 27, 2013, raised $10,300 for the food pantry.
