A year-round program providing nutritious food to our neighbors in need.
In striving to provide nutritious food to our neighbors in need, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank operates an extensive Fresh Express Program that directly supports low-income communities where residents experience chronic hunger and food insecurity. Since these products have a short shelf life, the Food Bank collaborates with partner agencies to distribute fresh produce and dairy products received annually from both local and national donors directly to our neighbors in need.
This year-round program provides nutritious foods at more than 99 distribution sites in 21 counties. Depending on the harvest season, volunteers distribute a variety of perishable items such as potatoes, onions, lettuce, apples, strawberries and yogurt. Last year more than 11 million pounds of produce and over 4 million servings of fresh milk were distributed.
