Project SHARE is an interfaith, non-profit cooperative effort that has been serving the community since 1985. Project SHARE helps the hungry by providing supplementary food on a monthly basis to residents of the greater Carlisle area.

Our Mission: In response to God’s call to love one another, and bolstered by the generosity of volunteers, staff, recipients, gleaning partners and donors, Project SHARE's food pantry programs and partnerships meet the evolving needs of people on their journey to freedom from want.

Project SHARE distributes food during the week of the 3rd Thursday of each month. Recipients may come once per month during that week. Project SHARE hours of distribution are Tuesday 12-2pm, Wednesday 9-11am, Thursday 3:30-5:30pm, and Saturday 9-11am. Each allocation of food contains 55-65 nutritious food items, approximately one week’s groceries for a family of four.
