The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s Health Innovations Program connects its emergency feeding network and consumers served by these programs with members of the medical community in an effort to promote health and wellness and nutrition education. Penn State Health is one of multiple healthcare partners in our service area that are engaged in this outreach effort.
