Thanks to the Junior Women’s Community Club of Narberth for donating the proceeds from their Cocktails and Couture event on October 17th,  and to Holy Trinity Lutheran Church for their outstanding donations.

Thanks also to The Weird Sisters for hosting Spooky Halloween Stories, an event for our benefit which was held on October 26th and 27th.

Thanks to Giant Foods, who sent us a very unexpected and incredibly helpful donation which will help our community throughout the holiday season.

Thanks to Cynywd Elementary School for their month-long October donation drive.

Thanks to Ruth Harp from Whole Foods Market for coordinating wonderful volunteer events.

And of course, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who volunteers and donates their time and their talents week in and week out.

Garden overages?

Too many tomatoes? Sick of squash? Endless eggplant? We could use any vegetables you can’t manage to eat or preserve.

Please remember, if you would like to donate fresh or non perishable
items to the Narberth Community Food Bank we’re  available Monday nights at 7pm and Tuesday between 8:15am and 10am. No other times are currently available.

Thank you!

Happy Holidays!

Reminder: The Narberth Community Food Bank will be closed on December 24th and 25th, and the following week on December 31st, and January 1st. We will return to regular winter hours from 7-8 pm on January 7th to accept donations, and Tuesday, January 8th for guest services.

Urgent: Donations need to fulfill additional Thanksgiving requests

In November the Narberth Community Food Bank has one goal: to provide a Thanksgiving meal to all those who request one.

That’s where we need your help! We were prepared for 58 Thanksgiving  dinners this year. We just received a request from our public schools for 10 more Turkey dinner boxes. WE NEED AN ADDITIONAL 10 supermarket gift cards in $25.00 increments.

Gift cards? Yes! The average size Turkey is 10-16 lbs, costs about $25.00, and the food bank does not have freezer space to store 68 turkeys.Our guests are happy to visit area markets and pick up their own bird. We will supply side dishes and pies.

We need your help to fulfill the increased numbers of requests this Thanksgiving season. As always, thank you for your generous  and continued support. We couldn’t do it without you. If you’re able to help, gift cards can be dropped off during volunteer setup on Mondays from 7 to 8 pm (closer to 7 is better), or during guest hours on Tuesdays from 10 am to 1 pm or 6 pm to 7:30 pm.

The news is out; the United Methodist Church of Narberth is for sale. The congregation is closing the doors and the ministry is moving to Bryn Mawr Methodist.

All community groups using the building are looking for new homes, including our food bank. Although the building has not been purchased, we will have to move out before February first.

It is our pledge and intention to remain in Narberth. We are actively working with the community to find a space that meets our current needs, anticipated growth, future programming, and our commitment to provide seamless service to our guests.

We will need volunteers to help us move! Please check back for updates on how you can get involved.

Thank you all for your many inquiries regarding the future of the food bank considering the status of the United Methodist Church. Your care and concern for our programs and our guests is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support!

Join us on Sunday September 23, 2012 at the Narberth Fall Music Festival! The Food Bank will be selling cupcakes from 2-6pm in front of The Greeks. Stop by with a can of food for donation, and/or purchase a treat!

On October 18, 2012, The Junior Women’s Community Club of Narberth will host a Cocktails and Couture fundraiser on our behalf.

Thank you to our supporters and volunteers

On Wednesday, July 11th, a fundraiser was organized by friends of the food bank and hosted at The Greek’s in beautiful downtown Narberth. The event was a rousing success, and we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to everyone who organized, hosted, attended, and otherwise supported the food bank during a very enjoyable evening.

In particular, we would like to thank The Greeks for hosting us all evening, John McShea of McShea’s Restaurant and Bar for his ongoing support and unique fundraising style, Robin Major (and her family!) of Whole Foods Market in Wynnewood, and Joel Bigatel, who displayed admirable skill passing yet another bar exam.
