The Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and the majority of their local partner food pantries and soup kitchens have not let up on their life-sustaining mission in the midst of the pandemic. Reliable food assistance has been a glimmer of hope for thousands of families in the face of fear and uncertainty.
The Food Bank has seen food demand increase by more than 40 percent since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March, the Food Bank has distributed nearly 28 million pounds of food and more than 153,000 crisis response boxes full of healthy, shelf stable food. The Food Bank is currently serving more than 175,000 individuals, including families, children, seniors and veterans. That is up from the 135,000 who relied on the Food Bank prior to March.

Money received from Susquehanna Community Bank will help the Food Bank sustain their response in the wake of the COVID-19 financial crisis. The Food Bank is committed to offering a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and dairy and this support will help them purchase these products and distribute them to neighbors in need.
“We are incredibly thankful to Susquehanna Community Bank for their funding support for our COVID-19 response and the continued economic fallout,” said Joe Arthur, executive director of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. “Their gift is an inspiring example of a business partner stepping up to help ensure that nobody in central Pennsylvania goes hungry during this crisis.
