Panther Pantry

Panther Pantry Setup

The Panther Pantry is a district-wide food pantry that opened its doors to Central Families in 2014. The mission of the pantry is to provide nourishment and household supplies to Central York School District children and families. Buildings within the District take turns each month collecting food and household items for the pantry.

  • Non-perishable food items like peanut butter, jelly, pasta, pasta sauce, tuna, rice, canned fruit, vegetables, and soup.
  • Household items like laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, and soap. 
  • Personal hygiene items including deodorant, soap, shampoo, baby diapers, and feminine products
