Food Insecurity in York County is a complex issue that requires a multifaceted approach. Our various programs are designed to meet the diverse needs of families facing food insecurity and ensure that everyone in York County has access to the food they need to live healthy lives
Every Tuesday, we hold a Drive-Thru Distribution at our East York Emergency Food Hub. Anyone in need is welcome to attend and each household receives enough food to feed a family of four for a week. Those in York City without transportation to our East York Hub can attend Walk-Up Distributions at our Princess St. location in the city.
Our Mobile Pantry makes stops and distributes food in communities across York County. Like our weekly distributions, anyone in need is welcome to attend our Mobile Pantry distributions.
Senior Box Program
The Senior Box Program is a federal initiative designed to improve the health and nutrition of income eligible seniors. Seniors receive a box of free food each month, which helps stretch their limited income.
Food Distribution Network
YCFB supplies quality food to over 125 non-profit organizations throughout York County that provide food directly to those in need. These "Partner Agencies" include food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, senior & community centers, and schools/childcare centers. Use the link below to view a list of our partner agencies.
The Give-A-Meal Program is a partnership between the York County Food Bank and area schools to provide holiday meals for hungry families over the holidays.
Food Rescue Program
Every year, 30-40% of food the US food supply is wasted and ends up in landfills. York County Food Bank is combatting food waste AND food insecurity through our Food Rescue Program by rescuing unused food from restaurants & supermarkets and distributing it to those in need and throughout our Food Distribution Network.
