Many local families have ongoing needs for food, especially now that prices have skyrocketed for so many food items. The local food pantries can help supply some canned and boxed items, but no fresh foods, meat, milk, or other similar items that are important to a healthy diet. Occasionally we will run a food drive - and you will be notified of those events. In the meantime - we can always use gift cards for Acme, Walmart, or Wegmans. Many thanks for any help you can offer.
Gift cards can be mailed to: T&E Care, PO Box 2111, Southeastern, PA 19399
If you have food items to donate and we are not currently running a drive - there are a few options for you.
1 - The Great Valley Food Cupboard (at the Baptist Church in the Great Valley, 945 N. Valley Forge Rd, Devon). This pantry is part of the Chester County Food Bank and provides food for local (Tredyffrin & Easttown area) families in need. Call 610-688-5445 to arrange a time to drop off food donations.
2 - Trinity Presybterian Church in Berwyn (640 Berwyn Avenue). This pantry is part of the Chester County Food Bank and provides food for local (Tredyffrin & Easttown area) families in need. Call 610-644-0932 to arrange a time for drop-off. (http://www.trinityberwyn.com/)

Reminder: there is no refrigeration in these pantries - so they can NOT accept milk, eggs, meat, fresh fruits/vegetables, bread, etc. Canned and boxed items are best - peanut butter, cereal/oatmeal, granola/breakfast bars, pasta/rice, spaghetti sauces, canned vegetables/fruits, tuna, canned stews/spaghetti-o's (or similar items), juices, canned soup, etc. Diapers and cleaning supplies are also helpful items to have.
