The Coventry Food Pantry, formerly known as the North Coventry Food Pantry, was recently established as a separate non-profit organization. It is housed in the basement of the North Coventry Township Building and relies heavily on donations from the local community to assist those in need. We urge you to join in the commitment and help provide canned foods, dried boxed goods, as well as household, personal and paper products. Staffed by volunteers, the Food Pantry distributes to its clients monthly on the first Tuesday of the month from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM and the following Wednesday from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

Roberts School District and is located in the lower level of the North Coventry Township Building at 845 South Hanover Street (entrance is on Urner Street). It is operated by volunteers and during the last year has served 122 families in our region which included 403 people! Established over 30 years ago, the Food Pantry continues to assist area residents from all municipalities in the Owen J. Roberts School District
