Our COVID-19 Crisis Response

We are committed to providing food security and housing stability to our at-risk neighbors and families experiencing lost wages and layoffs. The help and support from our dedicated employees, volunteers, board, donors, delegates, and community have allowed us to:

  • Continue to keep our public community food pantry operating as safely as possible during this challenging time.
  • Offer three safe ways to receive food through our food pantry: remote online ordering, prepacked food box pickup, and a delivery services.  *on-site kiosk ordering is currently not available at this time. 
  • Support and protect our most vulnerable by delivering food to older adults and high-risk individuals so they can remain safe in their homes.
  • Respond to increased community need by working with partners to coordinate food security efforts throughout the Pottstown area and provide families with additional food resources.
  • Stabilize vulnerable families and prevent homelessness by offering, Emergency Rent and Utility Assistance, eviction prevention and social service supports through our Pottstown Housing Resource Center (HRC). We are a member of the Emergency Rent and Utility Coalition-CV Program (ERUC-CV), which may provide some assistance to individuals and families who are at risk of eviction and/or homelessness as a direct result of COVID-19. 
  • Renovating and making building modifications to ensure our buildings are safe and we are reducing the risk for exposure to COVID-19.
