Feeding Mount Joy
The Mount Joy Helping Services Food Bank provides food to approximately 115 households per month – that’s 300-400 people! Residents of Mount Joy can register to receive grocery items and toiletries once a month. First time visitors to the food bank are asked to please bring your driver’s license or a recent bill that shows your Mount Joy address. You will receive at your first visit food and toiletries, and you will receive a phone call follow-up to complete your registration.
We gratefully accept food and monetary donations through individual and organizational contributions as well as food drives. These donations help feed Mount Joy residents in need, and we appreciate your help serving our community!
