Helping our neighbors in need

If you or your company has participated in food drives, please consider a Virtual Food Drive this year! Your donation will go further using a virtual food drive and provides a simple and immediate way help end hunger in central Pennsylvania. More importantly, it eliminates the high costs of handling food items.

Because of the Food Bank’s wholesale purchasing ability, partnerships with food donors and suppliers and efficient distribution model, a Virtual Food Drive gift multiplies the impact of donors’ generosity.

For example, for every $1 donated, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is able to provide six meals to those in need. A virtual food drive enables the Food Bank to obtain and distribute most needed healthy and nutritious food such as fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and center of the plate proteins.

To set-up a virtual food drive for your company/organization, contact Dave Carl at 717.564,1700, ext. 2263 or email


Each year, food donations to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank bring in millions of pounds of grocery products. Food drives are a great way for schools, apartment complexes, businesses, congregations, or civic organizations to get involved in hunger relief. Schools for instance could educate their students about child hunger while at the same time helping feed the starving children and helping end child hunger.

It's easy to run a successful food drive. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank can provide collection boxes or barrels and have available a flyer and poster to help you advertise your food drive. Contact us to coordinate a time to drop-off and pick-up you’re your collection containers.  Register your food drive


If you are a business or other organization that has food donations, please contact our Director of Food Sourcing & Logistics, Beth Hamilton at 717.724.3191 to discuss your items and whether or not we are able accept it.
