Food Distributions

The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) distributes government food to low-income residents of Lackawanna County via both mass distributions on designated days and on a constant basis via local pantries. Over 22 sites throughout the county are supplied on a rotating basis to distribute food through mass distribution. 

All low-income residents of Lackawanna County are eligible to receive food at the distribution sites on the announced available dates. Pantries will assist eligible residents as needed or in an emergency situation.

Mobile Classroom

The Scranton Lackawanna Human Development Agency was accepted to participate in a STEM grant.  This grant will be able to provide the resources to our Early Learning Programs to build and expand STEM activities and the professional learning for educators to lead them.

Our Head Start goal is to give more students access to the high-quality STEM learning they’ll need to succeed.  Through this grant, parents will have the opportunity to gain training resources and career opportunities in the STEM field.
