In central Pennsylvania, over 20% of households receiving food assistance have at least one member who has served, or is currently serving, in the military.

This startling statistic inspired the creation of MilitaryShare, a Fresh Express Program of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank designed to provide fresh, nutritious foods for families. This includes all military branches, prior service, reservist or inactive ready reserve.

“Receiving the food at a local VFW has helped me and my family during tough times.”
