Newfoundland Food Pantry Facility

Food Pantry Addition

DreherTwpBldgThe County recently received a grant from the Monroe County Local Share Account, which distributes gaming revenues from the Mt. Airy Casino, which will be used to construct an addition at the Dreher Township Building in Newfoundland to house the local food pantry program, displaced by the closing of the Catholic Church in the area several years ago.

The project has been delayed by higher than expected estimates for the construction need to house the new facility. The county continues to work with Pike County, and Dreher and Greene Township officials to move the project, which would serve families in both counties, forward.
