Mission Statement

In 1987, someone knocked on the doors of St. Peter?s Church and asked for food. This simple question sparked the creation of the St. Peter?s Food Cupboard, which now serves an average of 180 families each week.

The Food Cupboard is managed by more than 100 volunteers from the church, neighborhood, and community.?Individuals as well as groups from universities, youth groups, and schools are welcome. Some jobs require heavy lifting, but others do not.

On Tuesdays from 4-5 p.m. and Thursdays from 5-6 p.m., volunteers gather at the St. Peter?s parish house at 313 Pine Street to unpack, sort, organize, and store pallets of food we receive from?Philabundance. On Saturdays, volunteers arrive at 7:45 a.m. to help prepare the food for our clients, and then serve food and operate the Food Cupboard from 8-10 a.m. There are also volunteer opportunities for Mandarin and Cantonese interpreters.
