The Interfaith Community Pantry, 301 Cumberland Street, Cumberland, was formed in 1975. It originated as a part of the Interfaith Consortium, which was comprised of 23 local churches. The current hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The purpose of the Interfaith Community Pantry is to provide emergency food service for clients who are temporarily in need of food. Distribution of food is governed by family circumstances, family number and number of times the pantry has been utilized during the current year.
The pantry is supported with monetary contributions from churches, organizations and individuals in the greater Cumberland area. We are a non-profit organization operating with volunteers only, no paid personnel.
In addition to furnishing non-perishable food to the clients, the pantry provides the client with a voucher in the amount commensurate with the size of the family (not to exceed the maximum amount defined by the pantry). 
This enables the client to purchase perishable food such as milk, bread and meat, which the pantry cannot stock. At this time, we are having trouble keeping our pantry stocked. Children are living in food-insecure homes, donations are down and we are in great need. 
Please consider making a monetary gift or a donation of non-perishable food. We want to make a difference in these circumstances and we ask for your help. Thank you!
Joyce White, secretary
