I have been a volunteer at the Pantry for about 4 years, helping clients shop for food, stock shelves & whatever else I can do to help. The caring, compassionate staff do their best to accomodate those in need. The clients express their gratitude at the fresh vegetables, fruits, meats & milk provided.

I began volunteering at the pantry a little over a year ago and has become one of my highlights of each week. I've been touched so often by the people who volunteer and their caring spirit. So many hard working hands consistantly work to provide the best care, meet client's needs and offer extras when they possible can. It's been a joy and I've been humbled to be a part of these helpful hands in reaching out to our neighbors. The leaders here care deeply and strive to give unto others.

The Lord's Pantry works very hard to meet the demands of the clients and care for their grocery needs as much as possible. Their biggest challenge is keeping up with the number of clients and having enough space.

I am a client for many years due to chronic lung disfunction. From a room at St Jame's church,the Lord'Pantry is now a full service INSTITUTION for the poors. This 'no cash' five stars super market has a secret I can't discover:How do they accomplish so much? FAITH is the answer,I was told. Satisfaction-freedum of choice-dignity-politeness-concern rule this oeganization. The staff of volunteers make everyone fells velcomed; and me,I know I am special! It's impossible to imagine Downingtown and surroundinds without this FIRST CLASS food distribution center. May GOD BLESS the providers,the givers and the receivers!!

I was laid off from my job. Fortunately I was in a position where I had time to look for work. In tne interim I began volunteering at the pantry and quickly found out how necessary the pantry is to the community. I have since gone back to work but will continue to help them serve the community needs.

I've been a volunteer with the Lord's Pantry for more than five years. We distribute an amazing amount of food, including fresh meat, milk and fresh vegetables. Clients are treated with dignity and respect. Our directors work tirelessly (they're volunteers, too) to make sure we don't have to turn away anyone who needs our help.

This is a wonderful organization. They go above and beyond when helping the members of our community. I've seen them scramble to provide for people who were new or not in the system. 'No' isn't a word that is in their vocabulary.

This organization is constantly trying to find ways to better serve their constituents. The Pantry's efforts to provide items that contribute to a healthy diet vs. "filler" items that add calories but not substance, is particularly noteworthy. The organization is staffed by unselfish people who freely give their time and treasure to improve people's lives.

Go worldwide, offering their business model as the benchmark standard for establishing Pantry's in every locale where a need exists.

I have volunteered at the pantry for the past 2 years. I quickly learned that it is much more than a building where groceries are provided for families in need. It is a great place to serve and be served. Downingtown is blessed to have this amazing organization and its wonderful people. Lesa Hayden

We've just concluded a very successful Thanksgiving & Christmas food distribution for the needy. In addition we distributed huge quantities of toys for all who requested this assistance. I am always amazed at the spirit of cooperation and the first class systems in place to handle these distributions in a professional and caring manner. The Lords Pantry of Downingtown always goes above and beyond to make sure those receiving assistance are treated with dignity. Pat & Ray Williams

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The huge effort required to pick up foods, assemble and distribute for Thanksgiving and Christmas. These two special efforts are in addition to the regular daily distributions that must be maintained.
