1268 Fells Church Road
Belle Vernon, PA  15012
Every 3rd Thursday of the Month - 10:30 to 11:30AM
 
Some 30 years ago, hunger in the area was identified as a problem and fledgling effort at one of the churches became a collective ministry that continues to this day.  The Mid-Mon Valley was and is undergoing very substantial changes in its industrial base and employment opportunites.  The resulting dislocation in people's lives and in social agencies' ability to address this change left many, particularly the very young and very old, in need of dependable assistance on a regular basis.  We are constantly amazed at the size and persistence of the "food insecurity" problem in this area.
 
Therefore, we believe it to be a blessing to partner with the Belle Vernon Ministerium and participate in the Rostraver Food Pantry.  There is nothing like providing a loving and caring service to those in need alongside fellow believers.
 
Sponsored by the Belle Vernon Ministerium, the food pantry takes place at Fells United Methodist Church in Rostraver.  It distributes food to individuals in need in Belle Vernon and surrounding areas.  We currently serve between 180-200 clients per month.  The ministerium has also graciously sponsored Operation Fresh Express for the pantry clients to supplement fresh food items.
 
Please contact Dick Currie (724-469-1286) for any questions regarding the Food Pantry.

The Belle Vernon Area Ministerium is an ecumenical organization of churches created in part to provide a way for local congregations and their clergy to identify needs and issues where their collective efforts can provide a stronger response than individual actions would.
