York County Food Bank – York PA

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 2019 holiday season, please contact Michael Fox, michaelf@yorkfoodbank.org or  717-846-6435.

It is up to you to plot the fastest route to as many stores as possible and finish by 11:30 AM! Those riders that go to the most stores in the least amount of time (time bonuses included) are eligible for prizes. All you need is a bike, a bag, and a lock. Registration is free, you may buy as little or as much food as you like along the way!!

Bring Your Turkey to Church Day

November 24th, 2019

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 November 24th, 2019 to help the York County Food Bank provide 3,000 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

Here is a list of the churches participating this year!

  • St. Peter’s Lutheran Church
  • Immanuel UMC Glen Rock
  • St. John Blymire’s UCC
  • Calvary UMC
