The official opening of the Heaven’s Bounty Food Pantry was September 9, 1997. The pantry was started by the late Gloria Evans, a parishioner at the First Church of the Brethren – Quakertown.

Experiencing her own financial hardships, she had become aware of food needs in her community, so she solicited the help of the church membership to open a pantry at the church to help meet the food needs of others.  During the first month of its operation, the pantry served two to six families per week.  Today the Pantry serves 80 – 100 families per month.

Whenever the Pantry experiences a need, the Lord provides what is needed to get through the rough times. This has been experienced time and time again.

The Pantry relies on many sources to keep its shelves stocked. Federal and State donations play a large role as do local business donations, local church donations and individual donations.  Locally, our larger contributors include the North Penn Gun Club, Trumbauersville Lions Club, Great Swamp UCC Church in Spinnerstown, the Post Office food drive, and the Borough of Trumbauersville .

The pantry is most appreciative of the food donations
it receives from several local businesses.
Private individuals also contribute funding or food items.

Presently there are 16 active volunteers who keep the pantry running smoothly; one volunteer has been a part of the Pantry since its beginning. The number of volunteer hours ranges from 280 to 350 hours per month. There is no paid staff. Volunteers serve our neighbors at the pantry on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and do food pickups throughout the week.  Our volunteers also do all our required record-keeping and complete and submit the necessary forms for state and federal funding.  In addition, they coordinate fund raisers and act as community liaisons.  All volunteers attend training with the Bucks County Opportunity Council. A tired phrase, but SO TRUE: We could not do all this without them.

From its early years, the Pantry has been able to provide a limited number of holiday meals for families on Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

The pantry is making a difference not only in the lives of
those it helps, but in the life of the community.

Thank you to all those who have had a role in the
tremendous success of our pantry.
