Food from the Heart is a weekly community outreach program provided by the Social Ministry Committee. Every week, we provide a free hot lunch for members of the community, and all are welcome! Come join us on Wednesdays, from 12:00 PM – 12:45 PM in the fellowship hall!

*Note: During the winter months, Food From The Heart is canceled if Greensburg Salem School District is delayed or canceled.

Food Bank / Food Pantry

First Evangelical Lutheran Church is a Partner Agency with Westmoreland County Food Bank whose mission is to end hunger here at home. The Food bank has been serving Westmoreland County for thirty years and feeds 7,000 households every month. As a partner agency, First helps to serve over 100 of those families from their doors on the 3rd Thursday of each month.

Distribution Date: Third Thursday of each month from 9:30 – 10:30 AM

If you need assistance from the Food Bank, please contact Westmoreland County Food Bank (hyperlink) or call the church office for more information on how to sign up.

First Evangelical Lutheran Church is always looking for people or groups to help with loading and unloading boxes and serving our families on distribution dates. To get involved, please contact Terry Keffer through the church office at [email protected].

First Evangelical Lutheran Church also operates an emergency food pantry, which collects canned, boxed and bagged non-perishable food items to assist members of the community with emergency food needs through the week. Donations are accepted year-round for this ministry.
