Solanco Food Bank

Regular Emergency Food Requests

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.

SWEEP

(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:
• Bart-Colerain
• Clermont
• Martic

Holiday Food Boxes

We provide Thanksgiving and Christmas food boxes containing the essentials for a holiday meal.

Get Involved – Volunteer!

Food Drive Volunteers:

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!

Food Bank Volunteers: Our Food Bank is almost entirely staffed with volunteers, and we can never have too many volunteers! Give us a call if you’re interested in packing orders, helping to handle calls, scheduling pick-ups, or signing up new clients.

Food and Monetary Donations: Most of the food we hand out is donated by churches and community members. Whatever food is not donated, we purchase locally using donated funds. It takes a lot of money to keep the Food Bank supplied adequately and we greatly appreciate your financial gifts.

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!
