St. Peter’s Food Cupboard

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. Learn more about St. Peter’s Food Cupboard by watching this 3-minute video:

Thank you to The PHILO Project for producing this video. We believe that no one should go hungry, and we make food available at no cost to our clients. Every week we have the opportunity to directly impact our neighbors in need. The Food Cupboard can be relied upon without fail thanks to our volunteers, donors, and everyone who pitches in to make a difference.

How Can I Volunteer?

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.

Thanks to our hardworking community and parishioners, St. Peter’s Food Cupboard is currently fully staffed with volunteers on Saturdays. We are still in need of help on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in volunteering at the Food Cupboard, click here to request more information.
