It’s been a challenging two years, but the Delaware Valley Food Pantry (DVFP) is finally back at home serving its clients at the CVS Shopping Center in Lambertville.

When COVID hit the community in March 2020 the pantry moved its operations outdoors and served its clients outside for two years. “In rain and shine, freezing and sweltering weather, we stayed open and provided food to our community members who needed it,” said C.J. Lonoff, pantry president.

In September 2021, DVFP was displaced after Hurricane Ida flooded the building’s basement and its electrical unit. Thanks to the generosity of the Centenary United Methodist Church on Union Street, the pantry moved inventory and volunteers immediately and began serving the community outside the church.
