Food Cupboard Ministry

Lampeter United Methodist Church has an emergency food relief available with the LUMC food cupboard located at the church facility on the corner of Book and Village Road. It was designed to assist with supplying individuals or families with some groceries when a sudden unexpected need arises.  

“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.” Matthew 25:35


Guidelines and Procedures for Those In Need of Assistance:

 *Individuals must call in to a message machine leaving their name, phone number, and number of people in their household. Please speak loudly and clearly while leaving your detailed message.  

To Call for An Appointment:


Ext. 8

*A volunteer will be given the person’s contact information in which they will at that time contact the individual or family to set up an appointment time. (Please note: due to the food cupboard being run by an all volunteer and donation system, allow a few days after you call in for contact to be made and realize that if the cupboard is out of some items this is due to making resources stretch to help as many families as possible.

* The amount of food is based on the size of the household. 

*ONE Visit per month (this means a month from the last time you utilized the food cupboard)

*MAXIMUM of 4 visits within a calendar year

*LUMC Food Cupboard serves those living in the Lampeter-Strasburg School District and limited surrounding areas
