Community Harvest 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.
Community Harvest 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 Community Harvest Food Bank understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.
Community Harvest Food Bank is located in Fort Wayne, IN, and serves the 9 counties of northeast Indiana. With a mission to alleviate hunger, the food bank serves over 100,000 people annually and distributes nearly 18 million pounds of food throughout the region through in-house programs and nonprofit member agency partners. Community Harvest Food Bank is a proud member of both Feeding America and Indiana’s State Association of Food Banks. For more information, please visit www.CHFB.org.
