We serve our neighbors in White Oak, Coulter and Versailles Borough who have limited income by providing essential support through various programs.

Our regular food distributions are theĀ 3rd Friday of each month 11:00 am-1:00 pm.

In addition to distributing food, we connect our neighbors with other community resources and share information from the school district and other local organizations. Furthermore, we provide space for representatives from health awareness campaigns and similar initiatives.

Senior boxes and emergency boxes of non-perishable items can be obtained on non-distribution days; please contact us for availability.

While we do not provide SNAP assistance, Sampson’s Mills Presbyterian Church distributes grants for emergency rental and utility assistance.

For inquiries or applications please contact the church office.


Our History

The White Oak Food Pantry-Cupboard Stretchers was formally created in January 1983.

Though the format has changed and evolved throughout the years as we respond to the needs of the community, we have consistently provided much-needed support to our neighbors for decades.

Growing out of the Sampson’s Mills Presbyterian Church’s ministry of community food box distributions that occurred at Thanksgiving and Christmas, the White Oak Food Pantry-Cupboard Stretchers was founded to support our neighbors with a consistently available resource throughout the year.

Our Staff
