The Storehouse

The Storehouse food pantry distributes shelf-stable food and fresh produce on site at the Bethany Center in Homewood on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 12:00 to 2:00 pm.

The critical anchor of our food pantry is shelf-stable pantry items from the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank. However, we believe that it's important to go above and beyond for our neighbors. So, we also partner with local businesses to acquire fresh fruits and vegetables and, occasionally, personal care products, and PPE as well.

Register for the Storehouse below, or on-site at the Bethany Center.

Visit BCM

The Homewood community lacks its own grocery store, farmer’s market, or other healthy food provider, making it a food desert.

The food pantry at BCM began over 20 years ago in response to the need to reduce the stigma of hunger in our community, and help mitigate the barriers to access that living in a food desert creates for our neighbors. In addition to a geographical lack of access to healthy food, members of the Homewooth South community are significantly more likely to experience poverty compared to residents of the City of Pittsburgh at large.
