About GOD'S MEAL BARREL

Giving to God's Meal Barrel is an excellent way to help feed those in need in Greater Hanover Area, PA. This nonprofit organization has been providing food assistance to individuals and families in the Greater Hanover Area community since 1989. Through its various programs, God's Meal Barrel serves thousands of individuals each year, ensuring that they have access to nutritious meals and essential resources, meat products fresh or frozen.

History Of GOD'S MEAL BARREL

FEED MY PEOPLE was the message that Doris received in 1986. It was then that Doris and Glenn Wolff began a food pantry ministry journey that is still flourishing today. It started simply as compiling nonperishable canned good supplies and storing them in their garage. Word of mouth spread their message that anyone who was in need of food for their family was welcome to come into their home and help themselves from their shelves.

In 1989 Doris and Glenn purchased a property at 413 Baltimore Street, Greater Hanover Area, PA. The two-unit apartment building allowed them to live on the second floor and the first floor became the home of God’s Meal Barrel.

She continued to consult with the current management staff until her death in December 18,2022. In April 2023 we moved to our current location at 240 Frederick St, Hanover, PA.
