FRESH EXPRESS

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 127 distribution sites in 25 counties. Depending on the harvest season, volunteers distribute a variety of perishable items such as potatoes, onions, lettuce, apples, strawberries and yogurt. Last year nearly 14 million pounds of produce and just under 5 million servings of fresh milk were distributed.
