Mountaineer’s Table

The Ephrata Mountaineer’s Table is enrolling new families for the 2022-2023 school year. The Mountaineer’s Table is designed to help families stretch their grocery money, prepare low-cost meals for their families over the weekend, and have their children well-fed and ready to learn.

Every Thursday, participating families receive a recipe and the ingredients to make the meal.  Additional items including cereal, peanut butter, soups, and fresh fruits and vegetables are distributed. Helpful information is also included in the weekly packs, including “Smart Shopping Tips,” “Clever Ways to Use Leftovers,” and “Food to Always Have On Hand.”

There is no cost to participate, but there are expectations:  Program participants are expected to pick up their food every Thursday between 4:30-6:00 PM at the Ephrata Church of the Brethren located at 201 Crescent Avenue in Ephrata.  Failure to do so will result in being removed from the program. 

If you have any questions regarding the Mountaineer’s Table or to sign up, please email Stephanie Weber at
