School pantry programs are designed to help alleviate childhood hunger through the distribution of food to children and their families at school.
School based pantries are located on the grounds of a school and are intended to provide a more readily accessible source of food assistance to low-income students and their families. Sites are consistently in the same location as the school’s campus, have set distribution schedules, and offer ongoing food assistance services. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank works with eight partners at 36 School Pantry Program sites, serving more than 3,300 children each week.
