Food Pantry

 

The Wayne County Food Pantry Program is sponsored through County Government. It is operated under the leadership of the Wayne County Pantry Board which is comprised of private citizens. Board members are also coordinators at each of the pantry sites. The Wayne County Pantry Program has five sites located in strategic areas of the County to serve eligible County residents.

 

The 5 food pantry sites can be found in Honesdale, Lakeville, Newfoundland, Lakewood, and Damascus. If you are interested in becoming involved with the food pantry or would like further information, please contact us at (570) 253-4646 or email kterry@co.wayne.pa.us

The Wayne County Food Pantry Program provides nutritious shelf staples which may supplement the applicant’s food budget on a regular monthly basis. The food items vary, and are dependent upon what may be available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, what food has been privately donated, and what may be purchased with available funds and monetary donations. Typically, a monthly food bag may contain canned fruit, meat, vegetables, potatoes, spaghetti, etc.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

Information on meal planning, menu planning, nutrition, food storage, food preparation and budgeting are available at the pantry from time to time.

The Wayne County Pantry Program relies on U.S.
Government-donated foods and funding from both the State Food Purchase Program
and County government. The Program also relies on donations of food and monetary
support from the community and fund-raising efforts such as WNEP-TV’s
“Feed-a-Friend” Program, Scouting Troops, 4-H Organizations, Local Churches and
Schools, and so on. ALL donations stay in Wayne County and assist Wayne County
residents. Additional support comes from the Commodity Supplemental Food
Program, administered through Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley and
Northeast Pennsylvania. Eligible senior citizens may receive an additional
pre-packaged box of food for their household from this resource. For more
information, please call 570-253-4262.
