Our mission is to provide food to any Erie resident in need. Erie people helping Erie people in need.
Your tax-deductible cash donations allow us to fill the biggest needs first. These operating funds help us fix or replace broken items, acquire food, and participate in events that raise awareness or bring food in.
Our donation needs change regularly. Please see the list below for the items we currently need donated. We accept donations during our regular hours or by special appointment.
Neighborhood Bags wear out. Shelves break. Food costs money. Your donations help us keep helping the people of Erie.

We are open:
Every Thursday, 12:00-2:00 pm and 5:30-7:30 pm &
Every 2nd Saturday of the Month 9:00-11:00 am
We are located at:

Our mission is to provide food assistance to Erie residents in need.
While our mission is easy to express, it’s not so easy to fulfill. It takes the incredible dedication and caring of the members of our community to make sure there is always food available for the residents of Erie.
