Give A Meal

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, debbiek@yorkfoodbank.org or  717-846-6435.

The York County Food Bank is lucky enough to be one of the organizations they have chosen. Schools across York County Participated in our Give-A-Meal Food Drive Competition Sponsored by Apple Subaru’s “Share the Love Event” to provide our hungry district families with a healthy holiday meal. Over 21,000 pounds of turkeys and other food items were distributed during last year’s program and over 1,300 families received a meal for the holidays in 2017!

Bring Your Turkey to Church Day

December 9th, 2018!

For every fortunate family gathered around a beautiful table covered with delicious food, there is someone else who is not as fortunate and who does not have the means to provide the same for their family. For low income individuals, every day is another time that they find themselves unable to provide an adequate dinner for their family. Please help us feed the need this holiday season!

So encourage your church to participate in this one-day event that will assure that hungry families have a joyous holiday meal this year! All you have to do is bring a frozen turkey to your service of participating churches on December 9th, 2018 to help the York County Food Bank provide 1,600 meals to your neighbors this holiday season! York County Food Bank volunteers will collect the turkeys after the service that day. Turkeys given through this county-wide event will be used in holiday meal boxes packed through the Give A Meal program.
