The Hummelstown Food Pantry is a Partner Agency of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. As such, we received food on a regular basis from the food bank.

Serving 27 counties, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank is the largest non-profit food distribution organization in central PA. The Food Bank solicits, inventories and distributes food and other donated products to more than 800 partner agencies (food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, etc.) that directly serve people struggling with hunger. The Food Bank distributes more than 32 million pounds of food and grocery products. That is the equivalent of 27 million meals!
