Central Pennsylvania Food Bank
2 year commitment
Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.
The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank will receive support from PHA to implement a comprehensive nutrition ranking system over the next two years. PHA will provide technical assistance to help the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.
The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is a nonprofit organization committed to ending hunger in 27 counties across central Pennsylvania. By working with more than 1,300 local agencies and programs, we serve over 152,000 people in need each month through our two Healthy Food Hubs, located in Harrisburg and Williamsport.
Low-income people are at increased risk for both food insecurity and obesity
