BCHG operates three community food pantries located in Penndel, Doylestown and Milford Square. Our food pantries are independantly operated and funded. BCHG is entirely responsible for the maintenance of and staffing of the three sites.
In 2011 our pantries provided food for about 3525 individuals each month: 1408 children, 352 elderly and 1760 adults. This is a 30% increase from 2010!
Last year we needed your help to keep the pantry stocked and you responded:through your generous donations we were able to provide 126,921 meals at our three pantries. And in 2012: keep it coming. Every food drive, every donation makes a difference. Scroll down the page for easy “how-to-run-a-food-drive” instructions. If you don’t have time to run a food drive you can donate online right now: click on the donate button to designate your donation for use at the food pontry!
We don’t want to turn anyone away and say “sorry we can’t help; no food for you.” Recently a regional food bank has been sponsoring food drives in Bucks County. That organization does great work and we actually contract with them to BUY food. So if you donate to them we have to buy the food to bring it back to Bucks County-it’s a round about way to donate. If you donate to BCHG you know the food donation goes directly onto the shelves at pantries here in Bucks County. We are proud to collaborate with Philabudance, Bucks County Opportunity Council’s Food and Nutrition Network and the Hunger and Nutrition Coalition, but the majority of our food donations and ALL of the financial donations come from the community.
