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 spirit of generosity in volunteers, staff, recipients, gleaning partners and donors, Project SHARE food pantry programs and partnerships meet the evolving needs of people on their journey to freedom from want.

SHARing what we know is an essential part of the SHARE philosophy.  As a result we offer courses, programs, hands on participatory events that move us all to new levels.  The focus of our attention has and will continue to be our Kitchen, for it is here where we all learn to prepare the foods that we have available to the community.  By SHARing techniques and insights, into the healthy benefits of the selected foods and their preparation, we are able to make our lives more enjoyable, healthy and tasty!

Keep an eye on this space for ever expanding opportunities for all!
