Lebanon, PA – Lebanon County Christian Ministries (LCCM), a leading provider of food, clothing, and shelter is excited to announce its upcoming transition from a prepackaged pantry model to a choice pantry model. This strategic shift aims to better meet the diverse needs and preferences of our guests while fostering a sense of empowerment and dignity within our community.
In the current prepackaged model, requests are received and processed by our dedicated volunteers. Each order is customized to the specific family and a pick-up time is scheduled. However, after careful evaluation and feedback from our guests, volunteers, and community partners, we have recognized the importance of offering a more personalized and flexible approach to food distribution.
The transition to a choice pantry model will empower our guests to select the items they need, creating a more dignified and inclusive experience. With this new model, guests will have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of fresh produce, non-perishable goods, and other essential items, tailored to their specific dietary requirements and cultural preferences. The new choice pantry is branded “the Market on 7th.” The Market on 7th hours of distribution are Mondays from noon until 3pm, Tuesdays from 10am until 1pm, Wednesdays from 9am until 1pm, and Thursdays from 4pm until 7pm. Guests may visit the Market on 7th every fourteen days and no appointment is necessary. More information can be found at: https://www.lccm.us/food.html
This shift is part of our commitment to enhancing the overall well-being of the individuals and families we serve. By providing choice, we believe we can better address food insecurity while promoting self-sufficiency and allowing our guests to maintain a sense of agency over their food choices.
LCCM would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated volunteers, generous donors, and supportive community partners, whose contributions and collaboration make this transition possible. Together, we are creating a more inclusive and empowering environment for those in need.
