The Food Bank is located at 355 Buck Rd., on the edge of Quarryville, PA near the Quarryville Library, in the Herr Business Center. The office is open 9:00am-4:30pm for questions and applications, and from 3:00pm-4:00pm for order pick-up. We ask that Volunteers pack orders between 2:00pm and 3:00pm. Individuals and churches can donate food any day of the week between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
(Student Week End Eating Program) Students that qualify receive a bag of food to take home over the weekend that includes 3 meals and 2 snacks for each day of the weekend. We currently serve around 215 students. SWEEP is for students who are included on the free lunch plans at the following elementary schools and sign up for our program at these schools:

Get Involved – Volunteer!
The first Saturday of every month, Ferguson and Hassler Supermarket, located at Townsedge Shopping Center in Quarryville, hosts a food drive to benefit the Solanco Food Bank. Consider offering to help hand out flyers and receive donations at this food drive, or host your own food drive!
The Food Bank can always use:
• Money to purchase items like meat, cheese, eggs and fresh produce
• Non-perishable canned foods
• Paper toiletry supplies
• Individual-serving products – cereal, applesauce, etc.
• Vegetable oils, mayonnaise, flour, sugar
• Peanut butter, jelly, syrup, pancake mix
• Boxed potatoes and pasta of any kind
Thank you for your support!
