York County Food Bank – York PA

Food Drives

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be accepting food donations from Food Drives until further notice.

Food drives are a meaningful way to give back to the community, as they help keep the warehouse stocked full of food. Please read the food drive manual below to learn more and get started.

Registering your food drive is important so we know to expect an influx of food donations during a specific time.

To ensure food safety, we cannot accept:

Open or used items

Homemade items

Items with no labels

Expired items

Rusty cans

Noncommercial canned or packaged items (packaged in something other than its original container)

Alcoholic beverages

Fresh seafood

 Promotional Tools

 Posters and fliers are great ways to advertise your food drive. Below are posters and fliers you may print to help showcase your food drive.
