Who We Are

The “Food Pantry” is a non-profit organization that is housed and operates from Purity Presbyterian Church. It is actually the Chester Ministerial Association Food Pantry and is a partnership of about 20 area churches. Each church sends volunteers to serve on a rotating schedule to distribute the food by our adopted guidelines. We depend on these volunteers for our success since we have no paid positions. Financially, our program depends entirely on the generous donations of private organizations, churches, and individuals.  We recently changed over to a client choice system where guests choose a number of items from different categories.  We regret that we are unable to serve unscheduled guests.   Scheduling appointments saves time for the guests and makes it much less stressful and more manageable for our volunteers.

We invite anyone interested to join our family of volunteers in an effort to give those in need a helping hand and make Chester County just a little better place we can all be proud of. If anyone is interested in helping with the Chester Ministerial Association Food Pantry please contact the church office at Purity Presbyterian Church. Phone: 803-377-8175.
