Food Pantry and Other County Resources

We’re All in This Together!

Did you know that there are lots of resources in Beaver County to help you during these difficult and trying times? If you need help with food, Mt. Pleasant has a “Little Needs Food Pantry” that has recently become a “Big Needs Food Pantry.” It is open 24/7 and is located at the top of our driveway at 846 State Route 18 in Raccoon Twp. Because of the pandemic and the need for social distancing, we are now filling our outside food pantry with donated food from our inside food pantry with help from generous members of our congregation, along with recent deliveries from City Mission in Washington County and Faith Restoration in Center Township. We thank all those who are helping us meet this growing need. Special thanks to all of our Deacons who are helping coordinate this effort by keeping the pantry well stocked. We’re all in this together and we are here to help you!

Below are phone numbers of other helpful resources in Beaver County that you or someone you know may need. And, if you would like to help us keep our food pantry stocked, we thank you in advance. Checks can be made out to “Mt. Pleasant Church,” with “Deacon Fund-Food Pantry” written in the memo of your check.

House of Prayer Lutheran Church in Aliquippa is also distributing take-out meals curbside every Tuesday from 5:30-6:30 pm. They are located at 2100 Irwin St., Aliquippa. No reservation is necessary.
