A maximum of 2 households per vehicle will be served. You must present a valid PA drivers license or PA resident card and proof of residency. Paperwork must be filed in order to have someone else pick up food for you.

Drive Thru Operations

Distributions are held once per month. Please continue to monitor the home page of our website and our social media pages for updates. All Drive Thru Food Distributions take place at Springhouse Middle School, 1200 Springhouse Rd, Allentown, PA 18104, from 9:30 - 10:30 AM on the first Saturday of each month. All dates and times are subject to change.

The parking lot opens at 8:30 AM. You will NOT BE PERMITTED to enter the parking lot until 8:30 AM. If you arrive prior to 8:30 AM, you will be asked to leave. All cars must enter the parking lot and follow instructions on where to proceed. We ask that each family drives carefully and is aware of people and cars around them.

Families must stay in their cars at all times. Do not exit your vehicle for any reason.

When you arrive, you will be asked to open your trunk so that volunteers can put bags directly inside. Please make space available in your trunk for the bags BEFORE you arrive.

We will be distributing food based upon availability as supplies last.
