Emergency Food Voucher Information & Application
The Emergency Food Voucher program is an innovative partnership between the York County Food Bank and partner agencies to provide emergency assistance to York County residents in need when partner agencies are unable to keep food at their site. How Does It Work? When a York County resident visits a partnering voucher agency and reports that they do not have food, they are given an emergency food voucher at no cost. These vouchers can be redeemed at the York County Food Bank for up to 50 pounds of food per family. Who Can Receive It? Any resident of York County may request an emergency food voucher. Families with infants may also receive baby formula and diapers as available. Partnering voucher agencies meet with our friends in need to determine eligibility for a food voucher. The household’s size determines the number of vouchers provided: • 1-3 person(s) – 1 voucher • 4-6 persons – 2 vouchers • 7+ persons – 3 vouchers Clients who experience a state of food insecurity are eligible to participate in the emergency food voucher program.
