In partnership with the Central PA Food Bank, we will be joining together for an exciting and rewarding hands-on volunteer experience. Together we will pack nutritious meal kits that will be given to families who struggle with hunger in our community through the Food Bank’s partner agencies and programs. Food is the key to better health, opportunities, happiness and peace of mind. Together we are giving so much more than a meal. We are giving a brighter tomorrow to our neighbors!
