We distribute food every week on Tuesdays, from 11:30 am-2:15 pm, and on Sundays, from 9:15 am-10:15 am. All we require is proof of residence in Benton, Bloomsburg, Central Columbia, Millville, or Southern Columbia School Districts. We are currently serving approximately 350 households/per month, and over 250 backpacks are sent home weekly.
Before each weekend or break, elementary students in our Panther Pack program are sent home with a bag of breakfast, lunch and snack items. We are helping families feed their children while they are not in school. Sign-up for this program is through the school guidance counselors.
All children in our area, regardless of their school district, can receive free lunch and breakfast at Bloomsburg Memorial Elementary school in the summer. The Bloomsburg Food Cupboard purchases fresh produce for these children.
Monday evenings beginning after Labor Day, during the University semester, we open our doors to college students. No sign-up necessary, all college students are welcome.
