|Lebanon County Christian Ministries was appointed by the County Commissioners as the
lead agency to coordinate the Food Bank in Lebanon county. The food bank is located at 818 Water St., Lebanon PA. Call 274-2490
for assistance, to volunteer, or to donate items. |
|Grant money acquired from the State Food Purchase Program is based one-third each on the
unemployed (2500), food stamp eligibles (3040), and medical assistance eligibles (10,055)
in Lebanon County. For the fiscal year 1997-98, Lebanon County's allocation was
$89,824 received in quarterly payments. Ironically, some of the biggest needs are
personal care items that can't be purchased with grant money: soap, laundry
detergent, sanitary napkins, toilet tissue, toothpaste, deodorant, used pots and pans,
forks, knives, and spoons. In addition, blue jeans, especially large sizes, and
sneakers are a need.|
|All services are free, including the noon meal sites.
LCCM coordinates efforts with eight other agencies: Salvation Army, Jubilee
Ministries, Rescue Mission, Mental Health/Mental Retardation, Children and Youth, Housing,
New Perspectives, and Probe.|
|As the name of Lebanon County Christian Ministries suggests, many churches donate food,
clothing and money, but so do other community organizations like the Boy Scouts, Lions
Clubs, and the Post Office. |
