History

The Brookville Area Food Pantry serves food scarce residents in the Brookville Area School District since the early 1980s.  The food pantry began under the direction of the Brookville Ministerial Association and was first housed in the parish hall of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church.  In 1996, it expanded to the  8 Sylvania Road.

The food pantry is part of the Second Harvest Food Bank of NWPA, particularly The Emergency Food Assistance Program.  For more information about food programs through Second Harvest, click here.
