    Receive Food at The Food Hub

    Do you need food for yourself or your family? 

    We can help!

    For walk-in food distributions, come to the Food Hub at 812 N. Queen Street in Lancaster Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30am to 11:45am. Due to demand, we will serve the first 100 people during those times.

    What can I expect when I come to the food hub? 

    You can expect to be welcomed and greeted by our friendly staff!

    Each person coming for food and / or clothing will receive a ticket and wait in our warm waiting area until their ticket is called to walk through our food hub or clothing bank. When you’re finished shopping, a volunteer will help you cart items to your car or help you pack them to carry with you.

    Do I need to bring anything the first time I come to receive food? 


    You need to bring a photo ID for yourself.

    If you are also coming for clothing for your children, will need to bring medical card or birth certificate for each of your children.

    After your first visit, the only documentation needed is a photo ID for you as the head of household.

    What will I receive when I come to the Food Bank?

    Each time you come, you will receive:

    • A dry bag of shelf-stable items
    • A plastic bag of frozen meat & sides
    • A refrigerated box including fresh produce
    • Bakery items

    Note: The specific items you receive may vary depending on the season and what is currently available.

    Special Dietary Needs: If you are diabetic or gluten free, please let the intake worker know and we can provide you with a dry bag that is appropriate for your needs. 

    How often can I come to receive food from the Food Bank?

    You are eligible to come one time per month or 12 times a year.
