The Narberth Community Food Bank is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization registered with the Pennsylvania Board of Charitable Organizations. The food bank was formed to provide food to people in our community who need assistance. We are an equal opportunity provider.

We graciously accept financial donations to support the food bank. You can make a financial donation to the Food Bank through PayPal by clicking the “Donate” button below. A PayPal account is not required.

Other ways you can help include donating food and personal care donations. Our Most Needed Items is always a good place to start if you’re not sure what to donate.

Although we would love to thank you in person at delivery, there is a donation box on the 2nd floor should that time be inconvenient (Monday to Friday access to the building only).

If you are a school, club or other organization and would like to conduct a food and/or personal care drive, please email us at  to schedule dates and drop-off times.

Donation Collection Challenges: You can also organize a block-wide food donation challenge, a personal care challenge, or a combination of each. We are grateful for it all.

Here’s how it works: Contact everyone on your street and ask them to collect the non-perishable items below and put them on their porch (give them a couple of days to purchase them).

Collect the boxes/bags and deliver to the Narberth Community Food Bank on Tuesdays from 9 AM to 1 PM at 201 Sabine Ave in Narberth (2nd floor). Remember there is a donation box on the 2nd floor should the above times be inconvenient (access to the building is only Monday through Friday).
