Program Overview

EFC hours are Mondays 9:15am-12:00pm and 1:15-4:00pm; Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:15am-12:00pm. The food cupboard is closed on Tuesdays.

Our food cupboard aims to provide a three-day supply of groceries to eligible clients in zip codes 14604, 14605, 14607, 14609 once every 30 days by appointment only. Volunteers answer the door, welcome clients, check identification, verify addresses, and record appointments in the client’s file and the food distribution report. Food cupboard volunteers also help to keep a well-stocked and neat pantry, assist with deliveries, and rotate fresh food items. Before working any shifts, you must have a Volunteer Application on file with Dimitri House, sign the Volunteer Agreement, and meet with a staff member for orientation.
