Dear Friends and Neighbors,

We require all volunteers and all visitors to wear a N95 or KN95 mask while on-site at 201 Sabine Avenue and the food bank. This is a county-wide recommendation for community service organizations. Please ask for a mask if you don’t have one of your own. Thank you.

We need your donations now more than ever. If you are organizing a food drive, please notify us via email at leadership@narberthcommunityfoodbank.org so we can plan our storage to receive donations.

Please note our new office phone number: 484-278-4214.


Lower Merion Township is holding their Spring Cleanup Weekend on April 15th and 16th. Lower Merion residency is required, and you can dispose of your “unwanted refuse and recyclables, small household appliances, textiles, plastic, glass, paper, aluminum, and plain old trash.” Non-profit organizations will be on hand to collect unwanted computers, bicycles, furniture, clothing, and more.

The USDA has announced a Ground Beef Recall. Please click the link for instructions how to check any ground beef you may have purchased recently. 

We are only accepting donations in the lobby on the days we are on site, which are currently Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 am to 4 pm. Please do not leave donations at the food bank other than these times!

We are closed to external business on Fridays as we attempt to re-focus internally on continuing to meet the ongoing crisis. Please give us an opportunity to recover and schedule a different day for visits, calls, or donations.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has released their 988 Partner Toolkit. From the website, “SAMHSA recognizes the need for governments, states, territories, tribes, crisis centers, and partners to speak with one voice to ensure there is a clear understanding about what 988 is and how it will work. If you or someone you know is struggling or in crisis, help is available. Call or text 988 or chat 988lifeline.org.”

If you have an infant or child under the age of 5, or if you’re pregnant, or breastfeeding in the first year of your infants life, or not breastfeeding in the first six months of your infant’s life, and would like to apply for Pennsylvania WIC, their website explains further eligibility requirements and how to apply by phone or online.

If you are unemployed, you can begin your initial claim online.

If you have low income and limited resources, you may be able to receive cash assistance through Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
