Our Commitment to the Community

Now more than ever, the mission of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank matters. The impact of the coronavirus has led to record breaking unemployment, economic disruption, and food insecurity for more than 1,000,000 Pennsylvanians. As a life-sustaining organization, the Food Bank takes its commitment to the community very seriously. With safe and efficient protocols, we are increasing our distribution of food to everyone who needs it. Worrying about having enough to eat should be the last thing on your mind when you are concerned about your health and finances. We are here to help.

Find Food

If you are facing food insecurity, use our Find Food page to find the nearest agency partner in your area or call our HELPLINE: 1.877.999.5964 for more information.

The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is committed to meeting the elevated need that we believe will be developing as the COVID-19 situation continues, and we want our communities to know that the health of our clients, employees, volunteers, and other friends are our top priority. Many people are facing food insecurity, perhaps for the first time. Please do not be afraid to ask for help.

We have a network of about 1,000 partner food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs. Our agencies have adapted its distribution methods to limit person-to-person contact using drive through or curbside pick-up system.


SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly, the Food Stamp Program), is a federally-funded program that helps millions of eligible, low-income households and individuals purchase nutritious and healthy food at participating grocery stores and farmers markets. Our SNAP team members are knowledgeable, friendly and will help maximize your benefit amount. Call today: 1.877.999.5964
