Ada Mutch Food Pantry
Serving low income residents of Lower Merion and Narberth.

ElderNet's Community Resource Center provides many valuable resources to residents of Lower Merion and Narberth. The Center has a choice food pantry where low-income residents come to "shop" for pre-packaged and canned food, frozen sandwiches and snacks, and fresh dairy and produce. There is a social worker on site to assist with applying for benefits and services. In connection with Bryn Mawr Hospital, the Center also houses the "Ask-A-Nurse" Program where a licensed nurse is readily available to offer bi-weekly blood pressure screenings, provide health education, answer questions, and offer referrals regarding medical or mental health-related issues. Nurses also administer seasonal flu shots.

Please consider holding a food drive for the pantry through your office, school, or neighorhood event! Hunger is not seasonal, so any time is a good time to hold a food drive. ElderNet can provide you with informational flyers and ideas for your food drive.

Please call or email Brandon Trombetta (610-525-0706 or btrombetta@eldernetonline.org) with questions.

Mission Statement

To help older and younger disabled adults who have low-moderate incomes remain living independently in their homes by providing free volunteer, social work, food and emergency help.

Description

ElderNet provides volunteer-based services such as escort (door-through-door) driving to medical appointments, grocery stores, banks, pharmacies and other errands. We also provide friendly visits or calls, odd jobs and small home repairs, and help with managing checkbooks and bills. These volunteer services are free and are available to older and younger disabled adults living in Lower Merion Township or Narberth Borough in Montgomery County, PA. Income guidelines also apply for volunteer-based services. ElderNet also operates a food pantry and provides emergency financial assistance to qualifying Lower Merion Township residents (income and residency restrictions apply). Our information and referral services are open to anyone. We also have new and evolving services that further contribute to helping older and disabled younger adults remain living in their own homes. We collaborate with other agencies, and have a very active advocacy committee.
