WE ARE OPEN. As our community faces the threat of COVID-19, please know that PACS is committed to remaining open and distributing food for those who need it.
WE ARE DETERMINED. Unless we are mandated to close, we are working to ensure no one in our community faces food insecurity. We have implemented additional, stringent safety steps for our staff and volunteers to promote safe food handling.
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU. According to a survey performed by Magnify Money, more than 1 in 10 people don’t have enough money to cover just one week without getting paid. If you or a neighbor cannot make ends meet, please know our food pantry is open. People outside of Phoenixville may come to PACS for an emergency food package, produce and bread (if available). We ask for their name, birthdate and zip code. NO ID required. If additional help is needed, PACS is Northern Chester County’s Information & Referral site and can help connect those with need to other resources.
Safeguarding Food Distribution during COVID-19 Pandemic
To ensure the safety of our clients and staff, we have implemented new food distribution procedures to accommodate social distancing.
For our clients
Please call ahead (610) 933-1105 for all food needs. We will be pre-packing all orders. Only volunteers or staff who have taken the appropriate precautions will be handling all food items. No one will be allowed into the building.
Deliveries may also be possible, depending on location. These orders will be placed on the porch or doorstep of your residence.
We are open Monday-Friday 9 am-4 pm. Extended hours are available on occasion. Check our Facebook page for days/times.
For our supporters
We are experiencing sizable increases in the demand for food. Financial donations continue to be the best way to support us. These donations enable us to leverage our purchasing power to provide food for more individuals, including seniors and children.
If you want to drop off food and other donations, delivery should be made to the porch area. For the safety of all involved, you will not be allowed into the building.
We are also experiencing a shortage of volunteers. If you would like to donate your time, please sign up for the many open positions using our SignUpGenius form.
Our sincerest thank you to everyone who has reached out to us during this crisis.
