The Hershey Food Bank and Community Outreach

The Hershey Food Bank and Community Outreach is an all volunteer 501 (c) (3) organization whose purpose is to serve the community by providing free food and assistance with the temporary needs of families in financial distress and emergency help to transients.  Twice a month during the three days we are open, registered families have the opportunity to shop for their food needs including meats, milk, eggs, fresh produce, fruit, non perishables as well as paper and personal care items. Currently the Hershey Food Bank is providing food to over 400 families each month, with some families using the food bank twice a month. At Christmas, the Hershey Food Bank also provides gift certificates for clothing and shoes to the children of registered families.

The food bank also makes available free budget counseling to any family in need of this service. In addition, we make referrals to other organizations for further assistance with services we don't provide.  The food bank is staffed by a large group of volunteers who collect, shelve, and distribute supplemental food to our clients. We are fully funded by the generous donations of individuals, churches, businesses, and social organizations throughout the community.

Contact information: hersheyfoodbank@verizon.com or 717 520-3143. More information can also be found on the website: www.hersheyfoodbank.com

The goal of the Hershey Food Bank and Community Outreach is to help all who are in need and to stop hunger.
