fighting hunger, improving lives, strengthening communities
Who are the faces of hunger in central Pennsylvania? More often than not, they are people just like you. In fact, 60% of those served by the Food Bank are working families with children.
One in ten central Pennsylvanians, including one in six children, are facing hunger every day. The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is a non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce hunger in 27 central Pennsylvania counties. By working with more than 1,000 local agencies and programs, we serve over 135,000 people in need each month.
Meet Becky, a full-time working single mother of two children, who found herself struggling to afford groceries due to high childcare costs and unexpected medical expenses. Hunger isn’t selective, and our community is better when we join hands and help.
