Food Larder in Bucks County


A pinch of sugar dresses the top of a yummy apple pie.Dottie Rimmer is glad the holiday spirit kindles donations for those in need. Keeping the shelves stocked at the New Britain Baptist Church Food Larder has become more challenging in recent years in the face of funding cut-backs and the cost of equipment, such as freezers.

The Food Larder is entirely operated and staffed by 60 dedicated volunteers, led by Dottie Rimmer and her husband Byron, so 100% of donations directly benefit approximately 225 needy families each month in Central Bucks County. Volunteers sort bulk foods, canned goods, household cleaning supplies and toiletries, check dates on packaging, and monitor the shelves to help keep items in stock each Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
