The Ardmore Food Pantry

The Ardmore Food Pantry has been a presence in the Ardmore community since 2009. The Pantry has been known, from its founding, as a place belonging to the entire community regardless of race, color, or religion.

No one from Lower Merion is ever turned away.

From 2009 to 2012, the Pantry served an average of 30 guests each week.  Today, the Pantry serves up to 70 guests every Monday!  We have seen an increased growth of 135% in 6 years and the numbers are continuing to climb. 

Ardmore Food Pantry guests select from a menu that includes breakfast cereal, canned chicken, tuna, spaghetti and sauce, soup, macaroni and cheese, canned meals, peanut butter, jelly, saltines, rice, popcorn, canned beans and vegetables, canned fruit, coffee and granola bars.  Every guest of the Pantry is able to receive groceries worth up to $50 per bag which means that the Pantry currently provides approximately $3500 worth of groceries every week!

Beyond food, we believe in providing an atmosphere of mutual respect, understanding and radical hospitality. The Ardmore Food Pantry is dedicated to getting to know, listening to, and learning from our guests.

Financial donations are used to purchase food and toiletries for our guests. Everything the Pantry has available is acquired solely through in-kind and financial donations; Ardmore Food Pantry does not receive government assistance.

Thank you for supporting the Ardmore Food Pantry and the members of Lower Merion who rely on its support every week.
