The Give A Meal Program is a joint venture between the York County Food Bank and area school districts that seeks to provide holiday meals for families who cannot afford them. Participating school districts host food drives for non-perishable food goods, and volunteers from the Food Bank package these goods into holiday meals for local families. Through this program, many families who are not usually able to afford traditional holiday meals are able to enjoy them.
To learn more about the Give A Meal Program and how to contribute to or participant in it for the 2018 holiday season, please contact Debbie Krout, firstname.lastname@example.org or 717-846-6435.
