We have a food bank for those pet owners that may need some help providing their beloved pets food when times get tough.  Because we are so blessed with generous donations to feed the animals in our care we are able to help out those members of our community that may need us.  You must register for the food bank at the shelter to receive a voucher for food.  Food bank is limited to the amount of food available at any given time.

The Pantry roughly encompasses the Ridley and Interboro School districts in Delaware County, Pa.  Its coverage area runs from Eddystone to Glenolden and from Tinicum Township to Morton/Rutledge, although it does serve clients outside of those areas who cannot get to their pantries on the days they are open.  We also work closely with county social workers and case workers so their clients, who are eligible, can receive an adequate supply of food.  We serve all people, regardless of gender, age, race, religion, country of origin, sexual orientation, etc. and help more than 650 families in more than 35 different communities.

Pennsylvania-Mahaffey, Karthaus, Curwensville, Osceola Mills,Westover-

http://www.gantdaily.com/news/43/ARTICLE/69539/2010-01-13.html

Gant Daily January 13, 2010

CLEARFIELD - "Brigadier Trythall recently presented a $100 check to Robin Clark, left, of the Clearfield Ministerium Food Panty on behalf of Mountain Laurel Kennel Club members, who earmarked proceeds from their annual pie sale to area food banks for pet food purchases. The club donated $100 each to food pantries in Mahaffey, Karthaus, Curwensville, Osceola Mills and Westover, which are the ones that offer pet food to clients. Clark noted pet food is a much-needed item at food banks but is not always available because of budget constraints. Briggie, a standard poodle, belongs to MLKC members Shari and Bob Trythall of Curwensville."

Some of these pantries are found online--would believe contacting one would get you the information about the others if you are in that area:

Penn State Daily Collegian January 25, 2010

"Linda Tataliba, the executive director of the State College Area Food Bank, was the featured presenter.
"The food bank is particularly experiencing a shortage of sugar, flour and cooking oil because government assistance will not pay for these products.

"It also provides cleaning and household supplies and even has pet food to help those who don't have enough money to care for their furry friends."

Contact them if you are in the area and need help.

Pennsylvania-Stroudsburg/East Stroudsburg-

http://followmefoundation.org/

The Follow Me Foundation
Phone: 570-420-1077


Note the organization's website still shows their old Stroudsburg Storm Street address.  Contact them for information about their present East Stroudsburg location.

http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20100204/NEWS/2040330/-1/NEWSMAP

Pocono Record February 4, 2010

"A local food pantry inaugurated its new, albeit temporary, home Wednesday. But one thing didn't change — it still doesn't ask questions of potential recipients.

"The Follow Me Foundation moved its Food for Friends program to East Stroudsburg, after being forced to vacate its old digs.


"Deacon Jerry Reynolds founded the foundation with his wife, Susan, and others in 2000; they began the Food for Friends program in 2002.

"One thing sets them apart from the area's other food pantries: you don't have to qualify to get help. "We'd like to say we help the working poor," Reynolds said.

"He said the group saw a need — people who were earning income above poverty-assistance levels, but still needed help. "Too many people were falling through the cracks," he said.

"Food recipients, whom they call "guests," include seniors, veterans and single mothers — "people being neglected the most," said Reynolds.

"More than 3,300 families are registered with the food pantry. On Wednesday, the group expected to serve between 135 and 150 families, who received bags filled with staples, like canned foods, cereals, breads and dry milks.

""We give out two to three bags of groceries to each family," said foundation volunteer Jeni Himelright of Snydersville. That's about $150 in groceries per family, or more than $20,000 in groceries for the day.

""It just feels good. I've done it for seven years. It's a need in this area. Sue and Jerry treat the people with utter respect," Himelright said.

"Although there aren't any eligibility requirements, you must register with the Follow Me Foundation before receiving food. It asks for only basic information — name, address and phone number. Birth certificates or school IDs are needed for each child.

"An appointment is required before picking up food and can be made right at the pantry when it's operating.

"The Follow Me Foundation holds two Food for Friends pantries a month, on the first and third Wednesday. Guests can come back for food once every two months. Pet food is also available. Dog owners must bring their pet's paper license. Cat owners must bring a current rabies certificate.


"The food comes through donations from corporate sponsors like Walmart, Pocono Produce, ShopRite and BJ's Wholesale Club. The group also receives funding from organizations like the United Way of Monroe County, Sanofi Pasteur and the Knights of Columbus. It also gets money from fundraisers across the county. On Jan. 9, Pleasant Valley High School brought in $6,200 through a fundraising event hosted by Mrs. Ludka's 12th-grade honors English class.

"Jim Smith, a lifelong East Stroudsburg resident, received food from Food for Friends when he was ill. Now Smith is a volunteer, handing out supplies to grateful families.

"The food bank used to operate from a small garage on Storm Street in Stroudsburg but had to vacate by Feb. 1.

"Enter food bank volunteers Leo Patrillo of Swiftwater and a friend, Padula.

"Patrillo used to work for Halterman's Auto Ranch, and approached Jim Halterman with the idea of using his old vacant East Stroudsburg sales building on Route 447 until the auto dealer could lease it.

""Mr. Halterman turned around and said no problem. He wouldn't take rent or money for heat or electric. He is very, very generous," Patrillo said.

"Halterman himself saw there was a need.

""We see it in the automotive business every day. We get to touch their lives. It's just an excellent opportunity to help people," he said."

Pet food pantries

The Petco Foundation funds organizations that try to ensure pets are well-fed despite economic hardship. Sometimes the inability to feed a pet is what forces an owner to surrender a pet to a shelter.

If you are in need of assistance or want to volunteer, contact a local shelter, the SPCA or a group such as Animal Rescue Inc. in New Freedom.


For donations to Petco's fund to keep people and their pets together, visit www.humanesociety.org/foreclosurepets.

The Reporter-May 24, 2010

REGION - Donate dog, cat food here

"The Reporter and the new Perkiomen Valley Feed & Supply, 519 Sumneytown Pike, Upper Salford, are serving as drop-off points for a pet food bank.

"Items can be dropped off at The Reporter, 307 Derstine Avenue, for the next two weeks.

"They can be dropped off at Perkiomen Valley Feed & Supply — the former Agway site — indefinitely during these hours: Monday and Tuesday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


"The food bank is being started by Marx's Dog Training and Behavior, after realizing that more pet owners are struggling financially.

"The bank is accepting dog and cat food of any kind. Leashes, bowls, blankets, treats, crates and toys are needed as well. Money is not accepted.

"Other local businesses also are being sought as drop-off sites."

Contact Marx's for more information.
