Food Pantry

Although our Food Pantry is open only two mornings each week, volunteers work behind the scenes throughout the week. Weekly volunteer opportunities are available on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Please note that deliveries require lifting and carrying boxes that weigh roughly 20 lbs. Opportunities include : Pick up from local grocery stores and bring them to the church, pack food into boxes for delivery, deliver to families that cannot get to the pantry.

How you help Almost 150 people currently give their time to help the South Community Food Pantry — nearly 1,000 volunteer hours per month! Volunteers from organizations and from the community assist us. Many of the people who receive food also assist with the Pantry.
About us South Community Food Pantry began as an outgrowth of St. Joseph’s Kitchen in the 1990s — 12 emergency bags of groceries were available after the weekly meal. The need grew, and today it is the largest food pantry distribution in Berkshire County, serving over 1,000 families each week.
