The Ardmore Food Pantry began as the St. Mary's Episcopal Church emergency food cupboard. As a result of the weakening economy, there was more demand, and the Ardmore Food Pantry officially opened on 10/5/09. It is located in St. Mary's parish hall (36 Ardmore Ave.) and staffed by community volunteers.
