The Wayne County Pantry Program is sponsored through County Government. It is operated under the leadership of the Wayne County Pantry Board which is comprised of private citizens. Board members are also coordinators at each of the pantry sites. The Wayne County Pantry Program has five sites located in strategic areas of the County to serve eligible County residents.

The 5 food pantry sites can be found in Honesdale, Lakeville, Newfoundland, Lakewood, and Damascus. If you are interested in becoming involved with the food pantry or would like further information, please contact us at (570) 253-4646 or

The Wayne County Food Pantry Program provides nutritious shelf staples which may supplement the applicant’s food budget on a regular monthly basis. The food items vary, and are dependent upon what may be available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, what food has been privately donated, and what may be purchased with available funds and monetary donations. Typically, a monthly food bag may contain canned fruit, meat, vegetables, potatoes, spaghetti, etc.

Information on meal planning, menu planning, nutrition, food storage, food preparation and budgeting are available at the pantry site. More information, and assistance in food and nutrition planning and education may be obtained from the Wayne County Extension Office.
