The Cupboard at Calvary food pantry (The Cupboard) is a mission of Calvary United Methodist Church (CUMC). The Cupboard at Calvary United Methodist Church underwent a change in sponsorship and name in February of 2010. This pantry has been operating at Calvary United Methodist Church since March, 2008, when it was accepted as a member agency of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank (CPFB). The Cupboard currently serves a client base which may number from 88 to 130 families in a single regularly-scheduled distribution. All of the Cupboard's activities, including its twice-monthly, year-round distributions, are handled by a large number of dedicated volunteers.
