Food & Domestic Support during COVID-19 : As of 10/14/2020

Food Distribution Services

Please see the information below as it pertains to the resources available to families in the Souderton Area School District community during the COVID-19 emergency. If you are in need of food, and are a current resident of this area, please know that your community is here to help provide for you and your family. If you are in the position to provide monetary support to any of the resources listed below, please do so. Donation information is listed with each organization.


Each of these resources are subject to change and are wholly contingent on the rules and regulations coming from the CDC, the County and State leadership. We will do our best to communicate those changes in a timely manner, your patience and understanding is appreciated. Save this link! Check back for changes.


It is imperative that each member of our community do our part to ensure the safety of everyone. Please remember that if you don't have a need, and yet come, that leaves someone else without food who might need some.


Please, stay home unless it is absolutely necessary for you to be out.
