One of the largest in the City, the food pantry is located on the lower level of the Bridesburg United Methodist Church on Kirkbride St. and provides services for hundreds of people in the 19134 and 19137 area each week. There are two ways you can help: 1. Bring your non-perishable donations HERE or to any of the other Neighborhood Drop-off Locations listed below!

  • Our fair mayor, in his liberal wisdom of declaring our city a sanctuary, is actually aiding and abetting and encouraging criminal activity, illegal immigration. Why do the Democrats feel that if a law is not to their liking, they can ignore it? They should be removed from office if they flaunt the law.
