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 are in need of assistance from the Food Bank, please contact Westmoreland County Food Bank 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

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.
