The Cathedral of St. Paul’s Food Pantry has served members of the Erie community for over 27 years. Those in need from State Street to Cascade Street and from 9th Street to the Bay may come on Fridays from 9:30 am – noon. Currently we serve an average of 190 families each month.
We distribute food from the major food groups and a selection of personal care products when available. Food is either purchased through the Second Harvest Food Bank or donated from individuals or organizations.
Our dedicated team of volunteers nourish bodies and souls with warm hospitality. Clients are served hot coffee and cookies while waiting to select their groceries. We also provide between 2 - 12 emergency bags of food for those in immediate need.
You can help! Non-perishable foods such as canned tuna, peanut butter, and pasta as well as personal care items like shampoo, toothpaste, soap, and deodorant, are always needed. Donations can be dropped off at the Cathedral office during regular office hours (Monday – Friday, 9 am – 4 pm) or at worship services on Sundays. Thank you!
