Shippensburg Food Resources

Community Meals: Community meals are FREE and you do not need to register or RSVP. Just show up! During the pandemic, all meals are drive-thru or grab-n-go. Meals are first come, first served. While the churches try to make enough food to feed everyone, due to the increase in participants, churches are doing their best to meet the need. Please be understanding about changes or smaller meals as they try to serve everyone.

Food Pantries: You must live within the geographical area of the Shippensburg Area School District. You do not need an appointment for the first time that you show up.
