By serving as a community anchor for over 65 years, Elmwood Avenue Presbyterian Church has played a large role in Southwest Erie. Throughout the years, we have served in many capacities–from mission trips to local events, we continue to be active in the following mission projects:
The Elmwood Food Pantry
Our food pantry serves community members through Second Harvest Food Bank.
We operate on the 3rd Thursday of the month, beginning in February 2021 hours will be 11:00am till 12:30 on the third Thursday of the month. If you are hungry, call us. We would like to help!
Boundaries served are between West 20 to West 38; Cascade to Greengarden
